SUMMARY
We are celebrating the end of 60th Anniversary year of the Guild of
St Stephen in Australia and 50 years since the first Guild Conference.
Our next Conference is in Brisbane. A Guild Conference is a fun-filled
Altar Servers Camp, with talks and workshops to help you learn more
about serving and your Catholic faith. There is a lot of free time for
recreation and for you to use the sporting facilities and swimming pool
at Marist College Ashgrove (Brisbane). There will be time taken out to
go to Dreamworld and Whitewater World.
You take turns to serve daily Mass and serve the Divine Office, the
Prayer of the Church. The Opening Mass is with the Most Rev Brian
Finnigan, Auxiliary Bishop of Brisbane at the Cathedral of St Stephen.
As such, those coming from other cities are taking part in a pilgrimage
— the St Stephen’s Pilgrimage.
The Pilgrimage Package includes: Conference Fee, entry to Dreamworld
and Whitewater World, return travel from Sydney to Brisbane, meals
and accomodation, as well as accident insurance. Limited places.
Applications close 5 December 2014. Pay at least a deposit to hold a

What and Where
Who
The Guild of St Stephen (the Guild) is an association for those who
are involved in the ministry at the altar. Through its activities, the
Guild encourages all who serve at Mass and at other liturgies to
grow in their ministry and to grow in their Catholic faith.
It is for those young Catholics who are 9 to 15 years of age, who
are, either: already serving, or, wanting to learn how to serve. By
exception, others who are over 15 years of age may be considered,
and further conditions would apply, if accepted.
Guild Regional Conferences are held regularly, usually following
a National Conference, or following a local Guild Conference. A
Guild Conference is a fun-filled altar servers’ camp. The next one
will be held in Brisbane (4-10 January 2015) to celebrate the end of
our 60th Anniversary Year of the Guild in Australia, and 50 years
since the first national gathering of altar servers.
When and How Much Does it Cost
The theme of the 2015 Guild Conference is “Year of Consecrated
Life”. Pope Francis has called the whole Church to celebrate this
in 2015.
There are opportunities to take turns serving daily Mass and to
experience the Prayer of the Church called the Divine Office.
Participants learn to sing the Chants of the Mass and the Divine
Office. There are serving workshops to help you become confident
in Serving. These are all taught in a fun and enjoyable way.
We are using Marist College Ashgrove (Brisbane), which has
excellent facilities for young people. There is an abundance of free
time for recreation during which you can use the sporting fields
and swimming pool. To encourange lively participation in Guild
Activities, we will be visitng Dreamworld and Whitewater World.
Since the Opening Mass is at the Brisbane Cathedral of St Stephen,
as such, our journey to Brisbane will be a Pilgrimage to St Stephen’s.
The Pilgrimage, Conference, and activities will help you to make
life long friends with many other young servers who also love
serving at the altar.
Those from Sydney and surrounds will gather on Sunday 4 January
together with other servers who have come from Victoria. They
will travel on Pilgrimage (Sydney to Brisbane) to St Stephen’s
Cathedral on 5 January. The Conference part is held mainly at
Marist College Ashgrove. Some parts will be at St Stephen’s
Cathedral. There is opportunity for a treat to two theme parks,
before the return to Sydney in the evening on Saturday 10 January.
The cost is $500. We would especially like to encourage boys who
serve regularly and are quite prayerful to attend. As such, please do
not hesitate to contact us if there are any difficulties.
Ask about the option of payment by instalments.
