Pope to meet with over 50,000 altar servers

Catholic World News - July 26, 2010

Over 50,000 European altar servers-- 44,000 of them from Germany-- will meet with Pope Benedict on August as part of a pilgrimage organized by Coetus Internationalis Ministrantium. The association of altar servers was founded in 1960.

On August 3, the servers will attend Vespers celebrated by the Pope in St. Peter’s Square; the following day, they will attend the Holy Father’s general audience.

    It's too bad that the U.S. is not a participant. It would give the altar servers the much needed recognition they deserve and help express the value of their individual efforts to the Church.
