Growing in God's Love as an Open, Caring Community

Altar Guild


The Altar Guild is responsible for setting the altar in preparation for the celebration of weekly mass,  taking care of the altar after each service, and cleaning the church.  We also prepare flowers, set up or special services (weddings, funerals, Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, etc.). We do a lot of “behind the scenes” work! We follow Dorothy Greene’s definition of an Altar Guild – “We set and clear His table as well as partake in His meal.  Just as we nurture loved ones, we arrange the materials through which Christ nurtures His people.”

Our group currently consists of: Diane Copeland, Della Gleason, Ruth MacIlroy, Peg Olson, Mary Ann Perry, and Director Lisa Chambers. However, we are always in need of volunteers to serve in our guild.  Please contact Lisa Chambers for more information at
