The Altar is the center of the Church’s Life and is the major focus of the Altar Guild.  Those who serve on the Altar Guild are called to a vocation.  It is a privilege of serving at God’s Altar.  The work of the Guild’s primary purpose is to prepare and maintain the Eucharistic vessels and linens as well as the Altar and Sanctuary, and for all other liturgies including Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Matrimony and Funerals.  The Rector is the head of the Altar Guild and bears the final responsibility for how Altar Guild duties are performed.  

 

The Altar Guild exists to serve God and to assist the clergy.  They willingly and harmoniously carry out the expectations of priests.  The members of the Altar Guild must consecrate themselves to their work, placing love of Christ above all personal feelings, working together in perfect agreement and peace.

 

St. Uriel’s Altar Guild is very loyal to the clergy of the parish.  The privilege of serving as God’s housekeepers, requires the members to dedicate themselves as an offering to God, to whom nothing but the best can be given.  Perfect cleanliness and punctuality are absolutely essential in God’s House and are the external manifestation of loyalty and devotion.  The Altar Guild can function adequately only when its members are inspired by a spirit of devotion.  To be a member of the Altar Guild we must put this duty above all others.  Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter are busy Church seasons for the Altar Guild, as are Bishop’s visits and Synods.

 

Please continue to offer up your prayers for St. Uriel’s Altar Guild.  Deepest thanks are offered to those who are now serving on the Altar Guild.
