Altar Guild

The Altar Guild is responsible for setting the Altar with the elements offered by the people of the church for Eucharist, respectful care of the communion items after our celebration of thanksgiving, and care of the altar linens. The Altar Guild also changes the various color altar hangings to reflect the various seasons of the church year and major feast days as designated by the liturgical calendar and special services such as weddings and funerals. The Altar Guild is also responsible for ordering new and replacement linens, hangings, and vestments. As part of the Altar Guild’s duties, special “house cleaning days” are scheduled prior to Easter and Christmas.
