Altar Care


Care of Altar Linens & Altar Server Albs

Are you more comfortable serving God behind the scenes? We have a job for you! The All Saints Altar Care Ministry is in need of more helpers. What does this involve? It means doing light housekeeping in the sacristy areas such as dusting the church fixtures, renewing the holy water, and cleaning the chalices and cruets. It also includes washing and ironing the small altar linens, such as the purificators. We have flexible schedules and there are no meetings to attend. More information, please contact  Thank you!

Or, join the Altar Care Team! We have scheduled weekends and can actually do our job at a convenient time for that weekend. The schedule times are three to four times a year on Friday (doing light cleaning and laundry for the weekend) and three to four times a year on Monday (for small laundry only). It requires about an hour and a half in church and another hour and a half at home. You will have training and a mentor while you get used to the routine. Several of our members work with friends.


Care of Altar Linens
The manner in which we treat sacred things (even those of lesser significance than the chalice, paten, liturgical furnishings, etc.) fosters and expresses our openness to the graces God gives to his Church in every celebration of the Eucharist. Therefore, by the diligent care of altar linens, the Church expresses her joy at the inestimable gifts she receives from Christ's altar.

We are grateful to a number of parishioners who are presently performing this vital function of caring for the cloths used during our liturgies. However, additional help is always welcomed.  Purificators, and finger towels are purified and laundered for use in the following week's liturgies, and corporals and altar cloths which are laundered less frequently.

If interested in this ministry, please contact Pat Ludwig at 856-456-0052.

Altar Server Albs
In addition, parishioners are also needed to assist in the care of albs used by our altar servers.

If you are able to assist in the care of the altar server's albs, please contact Pat Ludwig at 856-456-0052.
