Archconfraternity of St. Stephen


The Archconfraternity of Saint Stephen is a Guild formed with the object of sanctifying the server while serving the Mass and other sacred ceremonies. It encourages the highest standards of serving and provides altar servers with a greater understanding of what they are doing so that they may serve with increasing reverence and prayerfulness. Members recite the Guild prayer every day and say short prayers in preparation for and in thanksgiving after, serving Mass.
