Altar Guild

The Altar Guild is a volunteer group of the parish whose ministry is to care for the altar, vestments, vessels, and altar linens of the parish. Altar Guild members prepare the sanctuary for services, and clean up afterwards. Altar Guild members also supervise the decoration of the sanctuary of the parish with flowers.

On a monthly rotation, members spend several hours laundering and ironing linens, polishing silver, and setting up for the weekly services. Responsible, organized, and detail-oriented people with a knowledge of liturgical protocol are preferred. Aspirants serve an apprenticeship before becoming members.
