Every worship service actually begins and ends with the work of the Altar Guild. Each week members assist the clergy and serve the Parish by preparing the sacraments and maintaining all supplies necessary for the worship services. Caring for the sacred vessels, vestments, bread, wine, linens, candles, torches and prayer stations in all the worship spaces is a true ministry.
The members are organized into teams that serve on a rotating basis. Membership is open to anyone who is willing to be trained in the proper procedures and wishes to serve God and the Parish with dedication and faith.
The Altar Guild is committed to enhancing the worship experience by carefully preparing for Sunday services, special services during Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent and Easter, and also serving at baptisms, weddings, funerals and inurnments. Working together to set the Lord’s table fosters a strong, meaningful bond of friendship and support among the members.
