The Altar Guild cadre of dedicated volunteers prepares the Altar for the Sunday morning services as well as weddings, funerals, and baptisms. Members are scheduled on a rotating basis. In addition to maintaining the liturgical pieces and linens, members gather twice a year, just before Advent and Palm Sunday, to polish the silver and brass liturgical pieces. These gatherings also provide opportunities for fellowship. You can learn more about the Altar Guild by downloading the St. Mark’s Altar Guild Manual.
Many Altar Guild members view this service a spiritual practice. If you would like to learn more about serving on the Altar Guild contact Mary Jo Detweiler or Susan Sedgewick.
