The Altar Guild is a volunteer group of the parish whose ministry is to care for the altar, vestments, vessels, and altar linens of the parish. Altar Guild members prepare the sanctuary for services, and clean up afterwards. Altar Guild members frequently supervise the decoration of the sanctuary of the parish with flowers. For more information or to volunteer, contact All Saints Parish.

Ushers provide outstanding hospitality to all who enter the church doors doing services and events and they facilitate worshipers’ full participation in services. They seek to create a comfortable environment that help worshipers feel a sense of belonging and a desire to establish or deepen a relationship with the Holy and with the church community.
An acolyte can assist in worship by carrying a processional cross, lighting candles, holding the Gospel book, holding candles or “torches”, assisting a deacon or priest set up and clean up at the altar, handing the offering plates to ushers, and many other tasks as seen fit by the priest or acolyte warden. For more information or to volunteer, contact All Saints Parish.
A ‘Reader’ is a layperson who volunteers to read one or more of the Scripture lessons during the church service. Some preparation is required to assure that the Holy Scripture is read so the words may be understood clearly by the congregation. To volunteer or for more information contact All Saints Parish.
The Prayer Leader reads the Prayers of the People at the appropriate time during church service. The prayers are printed in each week’s bulletin and it is helpful to speak loudly and clearly so that all may hear the Prayers. To volunteer or for more information contact All Saints Parish.
Chalice Bearers assist the celebrant (the Priest or Deacon) in administering the wine from the chalice at Holy Communion. For more information or to volunteer, contact the office at 410-257-6306 or All Saints Parish.
