The Guild of St. Vincent the Martyr is a confraternity of men and boys of the parish dedicated to the service of the Altar and graced with the privilege of assisting the Pastor and clergy in the conduct of public worship, the celebration of Holy Mass, and the performance of the Divine Office according to the Anglican Use of the Roman Rite.
Serving the order and dignity of the Sacred Liturgy in this parish church, the Guild also exists to promote reverence for the Holy Mysteries, to sanctify its members, and to help fashion Christian gentlemen prepared to discern and live out their vocations.
Membership in the Guild is open to all men and boys of the parish who have received their First Communion, who have been admitted by the Pastor and Acolyte Master to the ranks of the altar servers, and who continue to demonstrate zeal and dedication in serving faithfully in God’s temple, like Samuel of old and like our patron St. Vincent the Martyr.
"To serve at the altar, as to sing in the choir, is next to the priesthood the highest privilege which a human can enjoy. He represents the faithful and takes a most intimate part in the rich treasures of the church's liturgy and ceremonial. Those sacred ceremonies should be carried out with devotion, dignity and attention to detail."
~ Bernard Cardinal Griffin of Westminster
