Altar Guild – The Trinity Church Altar Guild is a ministry that supports the clergy in all forms of worship in the church by preparing the altar, communion vessels and clerical vestments in accordance with the Episcopal Church liturgical calendar. We care for the candles, altar linens and hangings, vestments and vessels so that they are clean, appropriate and available for all services including baptisms, weddings, funerals and memorial services in addition to the special day services such as Maundy Thursday and Easter Vigil. Contact: Gayle Celentano
Flower Guild – The Flower Guild creates floral designs for Sunday services. The members are on a rotating schedule and there are seven leaders who have the responsibility of planning the design and purchasing materials. The leaders work with the other members on Saturday mornings, and together create the altar arrangements. The flowers are then delivered to shut-ins or hospitalized parishioners by the clergy.
