Altar servers from around the Archdiocese of Vancouver gathered at Holy Rosary Cathedral recently for the seventh annual Archbishop's Altar Server Awards:
"It is certainly encouraging for me, and inspiring, to see you, because for the whole archdiocese you are signs of inspiration and encouragement to us who are older, and you are a hope for the Church," Archbishop Miller told the award recipients during his homily. "We are honouring you because you are the good fruit."
He thanked the altar servers for their commitment to the altar. He said serving at the altar is not only a duty or a service but also a great honour.
"I know, often, serving at Mass can be inconvenient," he said. "You have to give up a lot of things. You give up those things to be faithful servants of the Lord."
