Our Holy Guardian Angels’ Altar Guild is group of dedicated volunteer members from our parish whose ministry and responsibility is to care, to maintain and to prepare for the altar, vestments, vessels and altar linens or taking some linens home to be washed and ironed. The members of this altar guild are in charge of setting up and preparing items for the Holy Eucharist, cleaning the church and the communion vessels during parish workdays. Our altar Guild members prepare the sanctuary for services, and clean up afterwards. There is always extra work to be done at the major holidays, so we appreciate more helpers always, The guild is open to both men and women.
Altar Guild Prayer
Most gracious Father who has called me your child to serve in the preparation of your Altar, so that it may be a suitable place for the offering of your body and blood; sanctify my life and consecrate my hands so that I may worthily handle those sacred gifts which are being offered to you. As I handle holy things, grant that my whole life may be illuminated and blessed by you, in whose honor I prepare them, and grant that the people who shall be blessed by their use, may find their lives drawn closer to him whose body and blood is our hope and our strength, Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
