Every week, the Saint Barnabas Altar Guild assists the clergy and serves the parish community by maintaining the Altar, Sacristy, vestments, linens, vessels, candles, and supplies for all worship services and any other special events. The Altar Guild ensures that the proper colors are in place and that the Hymn Boards are current for each service according to the liturgical season and the service itself.
Serving on the Guild requires a commitment to be available when scheduled. While Altar Guilds in The Episcopal Church have traditionally been composed of women, here at Saint Barnabas, we welcome all parishioners to serve, regardless of gender or age. No special talents or knowledge of the church are required, only a willingness to serve when asked or needed. This is a wonderful way to be involved and learn more about the Episcopal Church. We welcome you to this quiet ministry dedicated to serving in the glory of God.
