The Altar Guild assists with all St. Mark’s baptisms, weddings, funerals, memorial services, the school’s Wednesday Eucharist, and all other special events. The parishioners of the altar guild provide sacred time to care for the holy items that support the practice of the sacraments of the church. Sacraments are special ministries given to the church to convey the grace of Jesus Christ to all God’s children. Through the sacraments, God sanctifies common elements of creation to bless human life and to renew the church to seek the peaceful kingdom of God.
The Altar Guild provides service on Wednesdays, Sundays, and High Holy Days, such as Christmas, Easter and Pentecost. Members are scheduled to assist in the sacristy, the area in the back of the church where preparations for the service are made.
Please consider joining this essential ministry. If interested, please contact the Altar Guild Chairperson, Audrey Choy, at 754-220-6820.
