Altar Guild

The Altar Guild prepares for all services involving a Eucharist by setting out the various vessels used by the clergy. Members also care for, clean and maintain the vestments, altar linens, silver and books. Meetings to discuss upcoming liturgies and the church calendar are held periodically from September to May. Financial support provided by the Vestry purchases wine, wafers, candles, linen and housekeeping supplies. Donations are used for new vestments and altar arrays. While the efforts of the Altar Guild in previous years focused on reconditioning silver pieces (chalices, bowls and other vessels) and the ongoing repairs and alterations of the vestments, this year again saw no major work in either area.
