On Saturday 13th October 2018 Altar Servers of all ages gathered at Christ the King in Reading for their annual day of fun and formation.
Members of the diocesan Youth Mission team led the participants in liturgy, talks and workshops to celebrate the special ministry.
Servers under 12 explored their role in the Mass, building on parish training with good practice.
Over 12s and adults reflected on their role in relation to the Way of the Cross and accompaniment of Christ using the beautiful stations around the Church.
They also explored "layers" of vocation: responsive to our immediate circumstances, lifelong vocation, the universal call to holiness and how serving feeds into each one.
A huge thank you to all who attended and contributed!
As a significant group of people in the diocese we are looking forward to expanding opportunities and provision next year.
