St. Stephen’s Solar

Altar Guild

The St. Stephen’s Altar Guild is a group of dedicated parishioners that is responsible for preparing the altar and sanctuary for worship, and for the care and maintenance of the worship vessels and vestments of the parish. It is a ministry that is prayerful, careful, and joyful. The Altar Guild helps all of us to worship God, “in the beauty of holiness.”

Prayers for the Altar Guild

On beginning our work
Dear God, be with us this day as we prepare the sanctuary for your people. Make us humble as your instruments, skilled as your creation, reverent in your service. Help us not to let the form of things blind us to their sacred purpose, or personal concerns deafen us to the needs of others. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

On completing our work
Dear God, we have completed the tasks set for us today. Thank you for allowing us this service. May we carry back into the world and into our homes some of the holy mystery that has surrounded us here, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
