About the Altar Guild

The Altar Guild is responsible for setting the altar table for all services in the main sanctuary each Sunday, on feast days, for special services such as funerals and weddings, and for Wednesday services in the Pilgrim’s Chapel. Responsibilities are shared among about 50 members who serve on one of six teams. Each team is responsible for one month every six months, therefore serving twice a year. Each team has a team captain and co-captain who coordinates scheduling to suit their members for specific services during their month. With about six members on each team, the duties for the month are divided. Guild members reference the Directions Book for guidance.

The Altar Guild always seeks new members. Volunteering for this ministry does not require you to take on the job of laundering linens! The team captain will make sure it gets done. All new members are given training and work with a “veteran” member so they feel comfortable while learning the little whys, hows, whens and wheres.
