The Altar Guild prepares the altar and sanctuary for all Sunday, weekday, and special services, including baptisms, weddings and funerals. Its primary purpose is to prepare the sanctuary for the offering of communion during worship services. The Guild also prayerfully cares for sacred vessels, candles, linens, altar hangings, and vestments of the church, and maintains marble, wood, brass, silver, glass, and needlepoint that adorn the altar. Altar Guild members, through their service, deepen their faith and their knowledge of the church and the Sacraments.
