Patens, ciborium, lavabo bowls, purificators, chalices, burses, palls, and corporals are just a few of the many items for which the Christ Church Altar Guild cares.
Each week teams of two or three members of the Altar Guild prepare all of the elements needed to set the altar for the Sunday service. They clean and polish the communion vessels, prepare the Lay Eucharistic Visitors communion sets, replace the sanctuary candle, clean and iron the linens, put up the hymn numbers, along with many other tasks to ensure that the Sunday services run smoothly. In addition to the Altar Guild’s regular Sunday duties, the members also began preparing the altar for Holy Week services, weddings, and funerals.
New members are always welcome!
