St. Mary's Church
Altar Cleaning Group

"When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built an altar there " - Genesis 22:9

The altar is the focal point of the church, the table on which the Eucharistic Sacrifice is offered.

The Mass celebration requires a number of special cloths, purificators, corporals, etc., and the Altar Cleaning Group is responsible for the cleaning and preparation of these items.  Our group also cleans the entire altar areas, polishes the brass, cleans the sacristies, prepares flowers for the church, and in the spring and fall we perform a general cleaning of the church.

The special care we provide for the Mass linens is performed on a rotating basis, so each person will serve once every six weeks.  This vital work is necessary to the conduct of each Mass.
