St. Gilbert's Guild
St. Gilbert's Guild supports the clergy in assuring
that the Daily Office is said each day at St. Mark's.
Members of this Guild are especially helpful by reading
Morning and Evening Prayer when the clergy are away for
vacations, retreats, meetings, and regular days off.
Those who read the Daily Office as a rule of Life are
encouraged to join and assist in providing this service
to our Parish family.

Altar Guild and Flower Guild
The Altar Guild is entrusted with the responsibility of
assisting the clergy in caring for the altar and all
items that are used during our worship. Altar Guild work
is a labor of love offered to God, not just a chore that
must be done. If you like to polish, clean, put things
in order, pay attention to details and stay in the
background, the Altar Guild is an excellent ministry for
you. The Flower Guild prepares the flowers and greens
for the decoration of the altar. Special service is
required during the festival seasons such as the
"Greening" of the Church for Christmas and preparations
for Holy Week.

eucharistic ministers and ushers of the parish. Servers
