Altar Society

Once a week, volunteers make sure the church is ready for weekend Masses. They prepare the main altar, altar server tables, chapel altar and the Tabernacle for the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist by making sure everything is clean, dusted and set-up properly.   The Altar Society is responsible for the cleaning of chalices, ciboria, priest’s vestments, albs and the linens. Duties also include replacing votive candles, cleaning and replacing the water in the holy water fonts, and making sure all the plants are watered and look nice. The Altar Society is also responsible for preparing the church for each liturgical season and any special holiday or Holy Day. They assist with setting up for First Friday Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Members are scheduled once a week.
