The St. James Altar Guild maintains the Sanctuary in beauty and holiness and prepares for all types of worship.

Members of the Altar Guild offer their services to God to:

Reverently prepare the sanctuary to enable the priest to celebrate the Eucharist and other acts of worship.
Give the congregation a setting which will enhance the worship experience.
Attract new members by demonstrating dedication and fellowship.
Care for those objects which reflect the 183 year heritage of worship at St. James.
The Altar Guild provides a simple but important service to our Lord and the congregation while the members enjoy the added benefit of good fellowship with each other. Four Altar Guild teams provide their services on a rotational basis, each performing their duties once every 4 weeks.
