Altar Guild 

The Altar Guild is an organization whose purpose is preparing the sanctuary for worship services. The Guild is divided into four weekly groups who gather in the sacristy on Saturday mornings to clean and polish silver and brass and set up for that Sunday’s services.  Laundry duties include each week’s purificators (linens used on chalices for communion) and other linen items, as needed.  Each group has designated members to clean up and reset after every service and to clean up and return to storage cabinets all vessels used for communion after the last service.  The processional Cross and torches are also returned to the Sacristy.

Funeral Guild

The Funeral Reception Guild is a community of parishioners whose mission is to honor and support family and friends experiencing grief after the death of a loved one through a reception following the funeral service at St. John’s. The purpose of the Funeral Reception Guild is to prepare for and host the reception in keeping with the family’s wishes and desires, as deemed appropriate by the clergy. This involves communication with the Priest assisting the family and other involved staff members, setting up for the reception, serving during the reception, and cleaning up following the reception. All parishioners are invited to join this special Guild, one committed to offering care and support to bereaved families of St. John’s with compassion, kindness, and sympathy during a difficult time.

This group of EYC advisors engages in the relational ministry necessary to build meaningful relationships with youth. They also help with the logistical needs of the youth program (driving, chaperoning, etc.).

Kitchen Helpers

If you enjoy cooking and have always wanted to spend time in a big commercial kitchen, St. John’s has a wonderful opportunity for you to have fun and serve others at the same time. Volunteers are always needed, and appreciated, to help cook, serve and clean up for the many parish occasions when we share meals and fellowship. The Sunday morning breakfast team hopes to grow its ranks. From 6 to 7:30 am you can be a ‘Prep Cook’, at 7:30 to 9:30 am you can cook and serve or help in the dish room and with clean-up. On Wednesday evenings during the school year, you may volunteer from 6 to 7:30 pm in the dish room or help with cleaning up the Parish Hall and kitchen.


Periodic deep cleaning of the kitchen is done several times each year, and helping hands are needed to scrub, wipe down, and make the kitchen clean and fresh. As well, many parishioners have given beautiful silverware to St. John’s, and help is needed to polish it periodically. No special training needed for any of these activities, just time and patience.
