The Altar Guild’s goal is to help create a sacred orderly space for worship, assisting at each service by preparing the altar with the elements of worship. The Guild maintains the linens, silver, candles, and flowers, and also assists at weddings, funerals, and baptisms.
The Guild has four teams consisting of four to five members each and meets several times each year for informational updates, training, and fellowship. Each team serves one week per month, and the Guild comes together for workdays preceding the major feasts of Easter and Christmas to keep the silver and brass gleaming and to adorn the church.
Please contact us if you wish to donate Sunday flowers in memory of a loved one or in honor of a special occasion.
Acolytes assist the celebrant at the altar, they lead processions into and out of the liturgy, and they lead processions into the congregation at the reading of the Gospel. They may also assist at other special liturgies as needed. This ministry is open to all church members age seven and older.
Eucharistic Ministers & Eucharistic Visitors
Eucharistic ministers administer the chalice at liturgies, bringing the Blood of Christ to the people. They also take consecrated bread and wine from the Sunday or weekday liturgies to members who are ill or homebound. This ministry directly connects the worshipping members in attendance at the service with those who are absent.
