Altar Guild

The Altar Guild of St. Luke is a wonderful group of very dedicated people who work diligently behind the scenes to make sure that everything is in place for the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. They meet on Saturdays to clean prepare the altar, vestments, and communion vessels for all worship services. They launder and care for the altar linens, polish the silver and brass, set out the wine and the bread, prepare the candles and set up for Sunday and weekday services. They make sure that we have a good supply of bread, wine, candles, and linens. This also includes:

• Preparation of candles for the Lenten Season
• Clean candle holders and replace candles as necessary
• Refill oil and wick for acolyte candles
• Wash, mend and iron all linen
• Prepare for Funerals, Weddings, Baptisms and Holiday Services
• Make sure flowers are placed on the altar for each Sunday service
• Display manger scene for Christmas Holiday Service
• Display Advent candles during Christmas

Many thanks go to those who give so much of themselves to this quiet ministry. If you are interested in joining the group of dedicated people, please contact the church office at (408)736-9216 and leave a message for Shirley Loo.
