The duties of the members of the Altar Guild include preparing and setting out the elements of communion and preparing the altar vestments which coordinate with the liturgical seasons. They place the flowers, water the plants and refill the candles. They are also responsible for washing the used linens and disposing of left over communion elements according to specified tradition. It would be correct to say that the Altar Guild partners with the priest in making the worship life of the parish run smoothly.
Currently there are 13 members serving on the Altar Guild, six of whom are men. If you would like to learn more about Saint David’s Altar Guild, contact the Chairperson, Linda Rhines at firstname.lastname@example.org.
