The Acolyte Guild serves the Church by preparing for, assisting in, and leading the celebration of the public worship of the church on Sundays, Holy Days, and other observances and by helping the congregation attain a greater sense of reverence and presence of the Holy Spirit through the beauty of liturgy. Members of the Acolyte Guild serve as readers, intercessors, torchbearers, crucifers, thurifers, and ministers of ceremonies, among other roles. All who feel called to this important ministry and are able to make a significant commitment of time and talent are invited to join.
For more information about the Acolyte Guild and the various functions its members provide, please read our Liturgical Customary.
