For the first time since the 2020 pandemic, on Sunday March 26th the women of the St. Peter’s Altar Guild stripped the altar and cleaned it and apse area thoroughly. They took special pride in cleaning the Lord’s table in preparation for the Last Supper, as Good Friday arrives April 7th. This annual cleaning event was suspended during the pandemic.
Sue Meadows is the heart and soul of the Altar Guild, having served for nearly 40 years, and has been its head about 34 years. She and the members of the Altar Guild have developed a strong camaraderie, using this time of reverential service to bond while individually experiencing the quiet joy of devoutly performing these duties.
Pat Howse had been a dedicated member of the Altar Guild for decades, and is greatly missed.
