The task of making the Eucharist possible is entrusted to the Altar Guild, a small group of men and women who are responsible for preparing the altar for Sunday worship as well as all other services or ceremonies.


Altar Guild members prepare the Cathedral and Chapel for services and oversee the adornments of the worship spaces especially during feasts of the Church like Christmas and Easter.


Apart from the altar itself, they also care for the items and sacred elements (vestments, vessels, and altar linens) that are utilized in services.


Altar Guild is a ministry at St. James which is open to everyone.
