Our Altar Guild is comprised of dedicated parishioners who prepare the church for Sunday and weekday services, baptisms, weddings, and funerals. Guild members carry on the traditions of St. Paul’s by caring for the sacred objects used at the altar: Holy Eucharist vessels, vestments, linens, and candles. Prior to each service, members of the guild prepare and set the credence table using proper seasonal linens.
Chancel Guild pays for St. Paul’s altar supplies with their annual dues.
St. Paul’s is blessed with wonderful adults and children who embrace our acolyte ministry.
