Devotion, Peace and Loyalty: Three words that describe this faithful guild. The Altar Guild is selected by special invitation of the Rector and assists the Clergy in the care and preparation of the altar. Members must earnestly dedicate themselves to their work by placing love for Christ above all personal feelings and by working together with the Clergy and fellow members in peace, devotion and loyalty. The external manifestation of this spirit is the cleanliness, punctuality, care and reverence with which members carry out the duties that support worship in God’s house.
