Ministries
Those who prepare the altar and chancel for worship services.
Those who read Lessons and lead in reciting the Psalms.
Those who set the Table and administer the chalice during Communion.
Those who greet worshippers, visitors and assist persons with special needs. They receive and present the offerings and are vigilant to assist the community at worship.
Flowers adorn the altar throughout the year, save Lent. Arranged by Altar Guild members our flowers are beautiful and provide a loving memorial reminder of persons beloved or events to be celebrated. Our flowers reflect the donors' gratitude and thanksgiving for prayers answered and blessings received.
Various projects through out the year but notably supporting regional and local organizations in need.
Counsel of advice, encouragement and straight talk. We are a parish deeply sensible to our Anglican/Episcopal history and traditions. Rite I at 8 AM and Rite II at 10 AM. Our exceptional organist Sherry Dwyer leads with preludes/postludes and hymns at our 10 AM Eucharists.
