Duties and Responsibilities

The purpose of the Altar Guild is to make ready the Altar of God and its surroundings for worship. Its members perform the vital behind the scenes preparation for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. We are always ready to prepare the Altar for worship, weekly; on holy days and for special services such as weddings; baptisms; memorials; funerals and whenever asked to do so by the priest.

New/additional members are always welcome and encouraged in this vital ministry.

St. Joseph’s current Chairperson is Mary Devlin.
