Additional Information

The Altar Guild is responsible for the care of the altar and its furnishings and preparing the altar for our worship. Service on the Altar Guild is a wonderful way to forge a deeper connection with and understanding of our worship. 

The Altar Guild always welcomes new members. No experience is necessary and, counter to outdated traditions, the Altar Guild welcomes men to its ranks.

Altar Guild Prayer

Almighty God, grant, we beseech thee, that we may handle holy things with reverence, and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion that it may rise with acceptance before thee and obtain thy blessing: through Christ our Lord. Amen.
