Diocesan Altar Servers' Mass

Today altar servers - about 150 in total - came from all around the diocese for the annual Diocesan Altar Servers' Mass. It's wonderful to see so many servers of all ages. Most had to sit in the benches, though a few were able to actively assist the Bishop at Mass. The work of servers often goes relatively unnoticed (like so many jobs, particularly when everything goes well), but they add a great deal to the lives of parishes, and the Cathedral certainly relies on them! It's great to see their work being recognised.
