The members of St Ann’s Altar Guild work throughout the year to see that our altar is clean, linens are spotless, and the silver/brass used is polished weekly. Additional responsibilities include ordering supplies, decorating for holidays, and managing special services such as weddings and funerals. We work in teams, are detail oriented, and very flexible to accommodate individual scheduling requirements.
Each week we maintain the new votive prayer station which has been a welcomed addition to our church family’s prayer lives. Many parishioners regularly “light a candle and say a prayer” in Thanksgiving or for a special consideration.
The Altar Guild also administers the Floral Chart located in the Communication Corridor. Parishioners are encouraged to mark special events in their lives such as family birthdays, anniversaries, specific Thanksgivings or memorials. When you sign up for a specific week, the Sunday Altar Flowers are designated for your special request. There is a suggested donation of $35.00 to cover the cost of the floral arrangement.
Being a part of the Altar Guild is a wonderful and fulfilling ministry. If you would like additional information please contact St. Ann’s Rector or Pat McCullough at 815-338-0950.
