The Pontifical Altar Servers of the Diocese of Birmingham fulfill two main purposes:
- Serve Masses and other liturgies celebrated by the Bishop, whether in the Cathedral or in another parish;
- Serve as MCs (Masters of Ceremonies) in other Cathedral liturgies.
This group is open to boys and young men from 8th grade up (if under 18, with parental consent).
