  Altar Guild


If you were not sure what the Altar Guild does, read on...

Our mission is the care and maintenance of the vestments and altar vessels of the Parish. We work throughout the morning to make sure all is set for our two services each Sunday, and also for special services.

The Altar Guild arranges the Altar and the area around it with the appropriate furnishings required for the ever-changing Liturgical seasons. We make sure that everything is in place so that our worship is dignified and orderly. In support of this, we wash and iron the altar linens, polish chalices and other utensils used for the Eucharist, and prepare and display flowers for our Sanctuary. We make sure that the proper vestments are available for those participating in the service, and that sufficient supply of bread and wine are ready and at hand. After the service, we return everything to its proper place, and see that vestments and furnishings are ready for the next service.

We would like to thank everyone on the Altar Guild, and you, the Parish Family, for the many contributions received that aid us to perform our work every Sunday and on special services. These contributions include, but are not limited to, bread, wine, oil, candles, linens, vestments, flowers, cleaning supplies, and repairs to vessels.

We would like to specially thank the Daughters of the King, for the gift of wine for most of 2016, and the Robertson brothers and Irving Williams for their help whenever called upon.
