St. Francis Altar Guild is a lay ministry in which our members are dedicated to the task of making the church ready for worship by setting the altar for each celebration of Holy Eucharist, and caring for and cleaning our sacred vessels, linens, and priest’s vestments.
Throughout the year we attend the altar for every service, including numerous special services during the Holy seasons of Easter and Christmas. We follow the Episcopal Church calendar for seasonal liturgical colors and change the altar hangings accordingly. We work under the direction of the Priest in Charge.
The Altar Guild extends an invitation to any church member who feels called by Christ to join us in the ministry of “setting His table”.
It is very rewarding.
