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.
