Servers and Vergers Guilds

The Servers’ Guild is composed of youth enrolled in the Sixth through Twelfth grades who serve as acolytes at worship services. The Vergers’ Guild is composed of adult parishioners who assist the clergy during services and train and supervise the Servers. Their service and commitment to this ministry contribute to the tradition of superior liturgy at CSMSG.


Ushers serve on Sunday mornings by warmly welcoming parishioners, handing out service leaflets, passing alms basins, directing parishioners to Communion, restoring the pews to order following the liturgy, and counting the offering.
