A centerpiece of Mass is the Altar. Setting the Lord's table is a very specific task and members of the Altar Guild are responsible for setting up and refreshing the altar for all church services when Holy Communion is served in addition to providing additional support for other services. Altar Guild members set up for Communion then clean, restore and reset afterwards. The Altar Guild provides and cares for everything required for Holy Communion: vessels, linen, candles and liturgical furnishings. The Altar Guild is made up of four teams that serve for one week every four weeks. Training is provided by experienced Altar Guild members along with a manual that describes all of the procedures.
