Altar guild


St. Stephen’s Altar Guild is made up of members who serve as the priest’s partners in making the worship life of the parish run smoothly. The Altar Guild is responsible for overseeing the altar, as well as the care of the altar linens.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Altar Guild or learning more about our work, please call the parish office.

National Altar Guild Prayer

Most gracious Father Who has called me Your child to serve
in the preparation of Your Altar, so that it may be a suitable place
for the offering of Your Body and Blood;
Sanctify my life and consecrate my hands so that I may worthily handle
Those Sacred Gifts which are being offered to You.
As I handle holy things, grant that my whole life may be illuminated
and blessed by You, in whose honor I prepare them,
and grant that the people who shall be blessed by their use,
May find their lives drawn closer to Him Whose Body and Blood
is our hope and our strength, Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
