  Altar Guild


St. John’s Altar Guild is comprised of over thirty dedicated individuals who quietly and consistently ensure that all tasks associated with readying the altar for Eucharistic services celebrated during the week are completed. There are five teams which alternate weeks during the month. These ladies are responsible to clean the altar and Sanctuary weekly; ensure that all linens used on the altar are cleaned and in good repair; ensure that the proper colors are being used for the altar frontal, hangings and vestments in accordance with the season or special celebration; order the wine, communion wafers and candles; set up the altar for Eucharist on Saturday, Sunday and special services; wash and put away the communion vessels after each service. The Altar Guild is always looking for new members and everyone is welcome to join.

Anyone interested in joining the Altar Guild should contact Parish Administrator.
