Cardinal's Mass with Altar Servers

The annual Mass for altar servers, organised by the Guild of St Stephen, took place on Saturday. It is always a delight to see the Cathedral filled with servers from all parts of the diocese. Many priests also attend this joyful occasion.

It is a poignant event for me; the first time I saw Westminster Cathedral was as a young server at this annual Mass (in those days, the servers all attended the Chrism Mass, and so the link to a priestly vocation was emphasised).

It is good to see so many young people faithfully committed to serving Mass - and I am sure that the nearby branch of McDonalds was equally delighted afterwards!
