We are your fellow parishioners who offer our time and talents in the service of God to prepare the church for worship, under the guidance of the priest. There are many tasks that we perform, some of which are more visible to you than others. These include;
Preparing the elements (the bread and the wine) for services
Preparing the altar – placing table linens, candles and the missal
Arranging flowers for the services and later delivering them to parishioners
Decorating the church for Christmas and Easter
Cleaning the linens
At present we operate in 5 teams and thus each team is responsible every 5 weeks for the above duties. The majority of our work is done on Saturday mornings (1 to 2 hours) and we also perform tasks prior and subsequent to the Sunday and Thursday morning services.
Could We Use Your Help?
The short answer is “YES”
Nothing that we do requires any previous experience. We all learned by joining existing teams and learned “on the job”. There is a terrific unity amongst the Chancel Guild as well as flexibility, and members willingly change assignments with each other due to other commitments.
If you would like further information about the Chancel Guild please call Cathie Figueira @ 416-234-9491 or email our church office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
