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. The altar guild prepares the altar for Sunday services, Wednesday services, holy days, and other special services, such as funerals and weddings, throughout the year. St. Stephen's altar guild is divided into several teams which are responsible for two week periods throughout the year. Helen Holley is the contact person for this ministry.
