Learn to serve the Traditional Mass

In addition to our annual Residential Training Conference for priests, deacons and servers, the LMS organises occasional training days for altar servers to learn to serve Low Mass. We are hoping to organise one such day in the very near future, to be held in central London.

Men and boys of any age and experience are most welcome to attend. The day, which is led by two very experienced servers, starts at 11am and should finish at about 3pm, with a short break for lunch – please bring your own food, drinks will be provided.
