Cathedral forms new group of altar servers, more girls join

Doomingkuppam resident Xavier Augustine is happy to tell you how glad he is to now have his daughter, a Class III student to be part of the group of altar servers at St Thomas Cathedral in San Thome.

“I served as an altar boy at Holy Mass at the cathedral when I was a kid and now that girls are also allowed to serve, I got my daughter in,” says this active church member.

Last weekend, some 30 altar servers formally got together at the cathedral campus after a large number of the boys and girls went through sessions of basic training – many of them were fresh to the calling.

Assistant parish priest Fr. Vincent is in charge of the altar servers who assist at all religious services held in a church.

There are 7 girls in this group of 30.
