Welcome to the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation

Altar Guild

National Altar Guild Prayer

Most gracious Father who has called me your child to serve in the preparation of your Altar, so that it may be a suitable place for the offering of your Body and Blood; sanctify my life and consecrate my hands so that I may worthily handle those sacred gifts which are being offered to you. As I handle holy things, grant that my whole life may be illuminated and blessed by you, in whose honor I prepare them, and grant that the people who shall be blessed by their use, may find their lives drawn closer to him whose Body and Blood is our hope and our strength, Jesus Christ our Lord. AMEN.
