Coordinator: Sonia Blake
The Altar Guild of Holy Sacrament Episcopal Church provides support for the preparation of regularly scheduled worship services each year. More than thirty committed volunteers offer their time and talents for weekly Sunday services, special services and festivals, and for other important worship events that may be planned and held throughout the year.
The Guild is led by a Coordinator, and is divided into four teams, each of which is guided by a Captain. The Altar Guild is responsible for overseeing the preparation of the altar for worship, the upkeep of vestments for the clergy, the care of the altar linens, and the decoration of the church as it may pertain to special services and festivals. In addition to periodic meetings, the group holds an annual Luncheon during the month of November at which they discuss and recommend ways they could improve their ministry for the following year.
