On quiet Monday mornings after Mass, silent disciples are at work. We dust, sweep, press and fold, among other inglorious tasks. We are the women and men of the altar society. Without this ministry the items needed for Mass would not be ready, the sanctuary would not be clean, the linens used during worship would not be washed and folded.
We take care of the flowers on the altar, the decorations, and the overall look and appearance of the Church sanctuary.
Although this ministry is in the background, it is an invaluable part of the worship of the community.
