Altar Ministries

Altar Ministry

The Altar Guild prepares the Sanctuary for the liturgies of the church and cares for the sacred vessels, altar linens, and vestments.  The clergy rely on their presence and preparation; therefore a member of the Altar Guild is present for all Eucharists celebrated at Holy Comforter.  Time commitment and tasks vary.


Bread and Wine Ministry

The Bread and Wine Guild bake the Eucharistic bread and choose the wine used at the Holy Eucharist.  Baking occurs in the parish kitchen on Saturday mornings as needed.


Flower Ministry

Flower Guild members purchase, arrange and care for the floral arrangements used in the Church.  Flowers are purchased on Thursday, arranged on Saturday morning and cared for during the week.
