Altar Guild

The Altar Guild is a ministry of about twelve faithful workers who serve St. Mary’s with reverence, devotion, and attention to detail. The members serve in pairs for two weeks about every two months. Their duties are to prepare the altars for Sunday services, Wednesday Chapel services, and special services as they come up, i.e. Weddings, Baptisms, Funerals, etc.

A check is kept on vestments for cleaning, laundering, and small repairs. Some linen is laundered by members as well. Supplies of candles, wine, and wafers need to be purchased on a regular basis. Periodically, silver and brass needs polishing.

The flowers on the altar at Sunday services are donated by parishioners in memory of loved ones, in celebration of a birthday or anniversary, or in gratitude for blessing.
