Serving in Worship
Many people work together to prepare for Sunday and weekday worship at St. David’s. The groups described here provide invaluable support for the many aspects of worship. If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please complete our Ministries Opportunities Form.
Altar Guild - Members of the Altar Guild prepare the altar for worship services. In addition to setting up for each service, they are responsible for polishing silver and brass, mending and laundering linens, maintaining supplies of wine, wafers, candles and cleansing materials. Altar Guild members are also responsible for setting up the altar for funerals, weddings, ordinations, and other special services.
Eucharistic Ministers - Eucharistic Ministers administer the chalice at the celebration of the Holy Eucharist on Sundays. They also serve occasionally for weddings, funerals and other services. Eucharistic Ministers are licensed by the Bishop following participation in training sessions. Contact:
Lectors - Lectors participate in Sunday worship services by reading the lessons appointed for that day and reading intercessory prayers. They also read lessons for special services. Being a lector requires skill and confidence in reading in public. Training is required.
Ushers - Ushers extend a friendly welcome to parishioners and visitors at Sunday services. They hand out service bulletins, assist visitors, pass alms basins and assist the congregation during communion. Ushers serve in teams and are also called on to serve at funerals and special services.
