The Altar Guild is composed of parishioners who take care of the altar and prepare it each week for Sunday services, as well as holiday and special services, weddings, baptisms and funerals.
Team members have often commented on how the task is spiritually fulfilling. To hold altar cloths, chalices, linens and other materials needed for Eucharist and setting the table with a quiet reverence reminds us of our traditions in worshiping God.
Each member is part of a team of two who once a month prepares the altar for Eucharist. Once a year each team fulfills the fifth Sunday duties. Altar Guild responsibility begins on the day before the group’s assigned Sunday and continues through the following Friday.
New members are always welcome and will be paired up with an experienced member to learn the duties. Interested parties should contact Altar Guild Director Julie Watt Faqir.
