The Altar Guild helps keep the Altar tidy and beautiful. There are teams of two to set up and clean up for both the Sunday and the Wednesday Eucharist services.
All of the linens are carefully cared for. This includes laundering the Fair linen and Credence table cover as needed, as well as the two Lavabo towels and the two Purifications used each service and also during other special services. Weekly memorial flowers are ordered along with all supplies needed for the important work of the Altar Guild.
New members are always welcome.
The year 2022 started quite challenged due to attrition and illness. Thankfully, two additional members were recruited, bringing our total membership to six, allowing for greater flexibility among members. We continue to use Chester Florists and, in season, flowers from members gardens. During this past year we purchased two additional oil candles which will be more cost effective in the long run than the beeswax candles.
Blessings to all,
