Altar and flower guild
One of the oldest ministries at St. John's, the Altar and Flower Guild ensures that the stage is properly set for worship and that everything is taken care of and put away afterwards. Their work is performed prior to and after worship; therefore, you don’t see much of their activity which includes setting up and clearing up the Eucharist, changing the hangings on the altar and lectern, arranging flowers, plants, greens and palms, polishing brass and silver items, and washing and ironing altar linens. Our Altar and Flower Guild is in need of new members right now. Please consider taking part in this ancient tradition. Some training is required. We also hold occasional worshops for those interested in arranging flowers for use on the altar.
You can also participate by making a financial donation for altar flowers in honor or memory of a loved one.
