Altar Server Appreciation Mass

The Vocation Office sponsored an Altar Server Appreciation Mass with Cardinal Seán O’Malley on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. A “Make Your Own Sundae” social time followed in Cathedral High School cafeteria.

Over 300 servers attended this year. Many of the servers came from our ethnic communities. During the Mass, each registered server received a certificate of appreciation from Cardinal Sean.
