Altar Guild

The Altar Guild works with the Rector to provide set-up and the removal of items used for all services in the Sanctuary and at other locations as needed, even off campus. Using their various skills, our Altar Guild members are dedicated to these responsibilities.  They provide scheduling, along with the purchasing of wine, candles, bread and other items as needed for church services.  They also take care of our Altar sewing needs.

We meet once a year with the Rector for training, instructions, and to integrate with the Flower Guild and more often – as needed.   We are always open to include new members and to provide training.  We welcome comments and observations.

This past year, thanks to a generous contribution, we purchased a new purple Altar hanging for Lent. Additionally we purchased a new Credence Table cloth and a stand for the Sanctus Bell when it is being used for a service. 

The Altar Guild Guide booklet is being revised to contain up-to-date information for the Altar and Flower Guilds to use when preparing for regular services and for special services following the Lenten Calendar.  Copies are available upon request.
