The parish community prays during all worship services for people who are ill, hospitalized, or having special needs. Anyone, parishioner or not, may be included on this list. Send an email to the rector to add someone to the prayer list.
The liturgy begins and ends with the work of the Altar Guild as members maintain and care for the sacred vessels, altar linens, hangings, and vestments. Members serve once a month, and the time of service is flexible. New members receive training and work side by side with experienced members as they learn. While the work of the Altar Guild is done in quiet and behind the scenes, it is seen and relied upon by the clergy and the congregation. Please reach out to the director of the Altar Guild if you are interested in joining in this important ministry.
The St. Andrew’s Flower Guild is responsible for arranging flowers for the main altar, the transept altar, and the children’s chapel each week. The group also decorates the church for the festivals of Christmas, Easter, Pentecost, and St. Andrew’s Day in November. A member of the Flower Guild should have a love of flowers and a few hours every four weeks to arrange Sunday’s flower offerings with another member of the group. Flower Guild will train interested members of the congregation who have limited knowledge of flower arranging and a desire to learn. Contact the Flower Guild chairs.
