Position: Altar Guild, President

Location: Petersburg, VA

The Altar Guild is a group of women who work behind the scenes preparing and tending the sanctuary where we worship. Our goal is to work with our priest, Rev Foster, to see that the service runs smoothly. We try to avoid surprises by having the sanctuary prepared before worshippers arrive and by having everything needed for the service cleaned and in its place so that the sacraments and offices of the church can be conducted with order, decency and beauty. Our Altar Guild prepares for and cleans up after three services weekly. In addition we prepare for and clean up after all special services that occur at our church — seasonal services, weddings and funerals.

Loyalty and commitment are the most important attributes of people serving on the Altar Guild. There is always a need for more to participate in this ministry. For more information, contact Robin Magee, Altar Guild president, or John Thompson, Verger.
