Serving God and Bishop’s Stortford

Junior Servers

Junior Servers assist in the preparation and administration of Holy Communion/Eucharist.  Junior Servers wear vestments (robes) and process with the Clergy, Communion Assistants and Adult Servers.  Junior Servers are usually on duty with an experienced, Adult Server.  There are duties for the service before (e.g. lighting candles); during (e.g. holding the Gospel Book, and performing the ablutions, or washing the priest’s hands), and after (e.g. snuffing candles).  There is quite a lot to learn, but Junior Servers are rewarded with feeling they are assisting in and giving dignity to the worship of Almighty God, by helping God’s people concentrate on the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
