The Altar Guild is responsible for preparing the Altar for services, under the supervision of the Priest, and in accordance with the Liturgical Calendar and the use of Liturgical Colors. The Altar Guild prepares and maintains the vessels and vestments used at the altar. Members are trained and assigned to a rotating team that is responsible for the services during a given week.
For additional information, or to volunteer to work on this ministry, contact any Mission Committee member.
Most gracious Father Who has called me Your child to serve in the preparation of Your Altar, so that it may be a suitable place for the offering of Your Body and Blood; Sanctify my life and consecrate my hands so that I may worthily handle Those Sacred Gifts which are being offered to You.
The Rt. Rev. E. Don Taylor
Vicar Bishop of New York City, All Saints’ Day, 2002
