Lay ministers who do the most fundamental and holy part of our common life - tend to and make ready the space and objects and place of Christian worship.
St. Luke's Altar Guild is small but mighty and caring. A ministry of subtle grace. Thanks be to God for them!
In about 1950 this organized group of parishioners formed the "Altar Guild". Along the way, a lovely prayer was added;
Grant, O Lord, that we
May handle holy things with reverence and prayer,
And perform our work with such
Faithfulness and devotion that it may rise
With acceptance before you and obtain your blessing,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
