On Saturday 9th February 2019 St Joseph's altar servers, together with Fr Linh and Deacon Tony travelled to Birmingham's St Chad's cathedral to celebrate the Guild of St Stephen Thanksgiving Mass with The Most Reverend Bernard Longley.
They joined over 300 fellow servers and members of the Guild from across the diocese all of whom processed into the cathedral and during the mass renewed their Guild promise. This wonderful prayerful day ended with a slap-up meal back in Burntwood at the local McDonalds.

The Guild Promise.
'I offer myself to God almighty,
to blessed Mary, our Mother and to our holy patron, Saint Stephen.
And I promise to do my best to serve regularly with reverence and understanding,
for the glory of God, the service of his Church, and my own eternal salvation.'
