Promoting and Supporting High Standards of Altar Serving in the Catholic Liturgy

The Guild of St Stephen is an organisation for Altar Servers that promotes and supports high standards of altar serving in the liturgy of the Catholic Church. 

On the 22nd November 1935 the first branch was established in the Nottingham Diocese and there are now over 100 parishes affiliated to the Archconfraternity at Westminister
