St. Augustine’s – Parkland is a busy church! We find lots of ways to get involved, both within the parish and outwardly, into the communities of Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, and Parkland County…
One of the unseen ministries in our church is that of the Altar Guild. This dedicated group is charged with anything and everything to do with the altar area of our church. That includes changing and cleaning the linens, putting up banners, preparing the sacraments of communion, maintaining the tabernacle (the little wall-hung box with a candle that holds reserved bread and wine), and a zillion other tiny jobs that “set the stage” for our worship services. Whenever the seasons of the church change, the altar guild is there, ensuring the place that is the focus of our attention is glowingly beautiful!
