We give opportunities to serve in worship as ushers, acolytes for teenagers, and altar guild, which prepares the altar area for Communion and seasonal activities.
Ushers - Ushers greet people at worship, collect the offering, escort worshipers to Communion, and assist all worshipers in their needs.
Acolytes - Our teenagers are welcome to serve as acolytes, assisting the Pastor and Vicar in worship, lighting the candles, helping the ushers to gather offering, and extinguishing the candles at the end of worship. They also have specific roles in seasonal activities appropriate for acolytes.
Altar Guild - Chaired by Cynthia Boyle, the Altar Guild is responsible for the care of Altar paraments, linens, Communion Vessels and Candles. The Altar Guild sets up the Altar area for Holy Communion, changes the paraments seasonally, assists with the purchase of new Worship vessels, and prepares the altar area for baptisms, washing and cleansing all vessels at the completion of their use.
Special Worship Activities - St. Paul's have special seasonal
worship services as well as Lenten dinners and special speakers. Be
sure to check our Calendar for these
