The altar society cleans the altar and sacristy ever Saturday morning to prepare for the weekend Masses. They also purify and clean all purificators after the weekend Masses and they help with the decorations of the Sanctuary during our special Liturgical seasons.
This Society is a vital part of our Liturgical celebrations here at St. John. The washing and caring of our Altar linens is a prayerful meditation and Altar Linen Ministers have the ability to bring about sacredness in the ordinary task of cleaning and pressing these linens. The washing, starching, and pressing of the altar linens is done in the home.
This ministry is open to men and women, young teens and not so young. Parishioners who are homebound or those who cannot be a part of other Liturgical Ministries at this time in their lives but who wish to continue to serve here at Saint John, are invited to prayerfully consider the Altar Society.
For more information about this ministry or to volunteer to be a part of this ministry please contact the Liturgy Director.
