Altar Care at St. Marks is an opportunity of service open to all members. Working in the Sacristy (historical name) is our way to show our love and reverence to God.
Altar Care normally takes place in the Sacristy, or special room, set aside for the storing and care of Paraments and Linens used in our worship service. Altar Care also includes the preparation for Holy Communion at each service and the care and storage of Worship Banners, which are an added delight to our worship experience.
We are blessed with many wonderful and creative sewers who have over the years made and embroidered Fair Linens and Purificators and also given us beautiful Banners. Working in the Sacristy is a privilege and blessing, open to all who would join us. If you would like to help, please contact Anne Harman (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dee Iverson (email@example.com).
