Altar Guild

Altar Guild members are behind-the-scenes service assistants, committed to the ministry of preparing and adorning the altars and church for our worship services which are the heart of our parish life.

The changing vestments (clergy robes) and altar hangings remind us of the progression of seasons in the Christian calendar, and highlight special services throughout the year.  The Altar Guild is responsible for the care of all the altars including the altar linens, vessels for communion and the vestments of the clergy and flower arranging.

We generally are blessed with a dedicated group of around 30 Altar Guild members organized into seven teams.  (Click here for list of teams and members.)
The Teams are comprised of three to five members, and serve on a seven week rotation, (click here for schedule) as well as volunteering for special services during Christmas and Easter.  Membership is open to men and women of any age. 

Parishioners are encouraged to donate flowers in memory of loved ones and in honor of special events such as graduations, anniversaries and birthdays.  Easter lily donations are recorded in a book of remembrance as a lasting recognition. To download and print a flower donation form, click here
