Acolytes

Acolytes are open to boys and girls 10 years and up. Acolytes are trained and prepared to assist at the altar in all regular and special services. Supervised by Nancy Dymond.
Mission & Purpose Our mission and purpose is multi-fold.  Acolytes lead the processions and recessions at all services.  We are responsible for lighting and extinguishing the candles on the free standing and high altars. We assist our rector (as well as guest clergy) and deacon in the sanctuary during the offertory and at communion.

Altar Guild

Altar Guild Members prepare the altar for all services and care for the altar appointments. Members are appointed and trained by the Rector.
Mission & Purpose: to prepare the necessary linens and vessels for the celebration of the Eucharist.

Eucharistic Ministers

Eucharistic Ministers, licensed by our Bishop, serve at the Sunday and Wednesday Eucharists, administering the Chalice and leading the prayers of the people when the Deacon is absent.
Mission & Purpose To assist on the altar during Eucharist on Sunday and at other services requiring licensed chalice bearers.  We all consider it a blessing to do the EM service as part of our own worship.

Lectors

Lectors serve at the Sunday services by reading the lessons, and are coordinated by David Field.

Mission & Purpose To provide readers for the lessons at the regularly scheduled services on Sunday mornings, at the monthly Evensong services, and at special services during Holy Week and Christmas.

Ushers

Ushers assist on a rotating basis at weekly and special services throughout the year by handing out service bulletins, seating people, and helping to receive the offerings. Jim Blanchette coordinates this ministry.

Mission & Purpose: Greet people as they arrive at our church, pass out bulletins, assist new or visiting people, take the offering, guide people to communion, and handle any issues that may arise during the service.
