Knitting and Beyond
Knitting and Beyond is a small, but faithful group, who knit and crochet for a wide range of local, national, and international charities. Past projects from the Knitting and Beyond group have include Knitted Knockers for breast cancer survivors, dish cloths for the parish kitchen, warm hats for Adopt-a-Native-Elder Christmas stockings, and winter scarves for the Red Scarf Project that are distributed to young adults who age of foster care programs. Men and women of all knitting skill levels are welcome.
Knitting and Beyond meets on the first and third Monday at 7 p.m. in the St. Paul’s Library.
For more information contact the Parish Assistant: 801.322.5869 or firstname.lastname@example.org and asks about the Knitting Ministry.
The mission of St. Paul’s Altar Guild is to serve God and the parish by preparing the chapel and church for all worship services and celebration of the Eucharist, as well as for baptisms, weddings, memorial services and funerals; we maintain all the vessels, linens and other items used in worship.
The Altar Guild, members known as sacristans, working quietly and unobtrusively, serves our Lord and our parish by preparing the various items needed for the services and setting them out in order to facilitate and enhance the congregation’s worship experience. This includes the three regular week-end services in the chapel or church, as well as the Family service (3rd Sunday,) baptisms, confirmations, weddings, funerals.
We reverently care for the silver, linens, vestments and other items as we prepare for the services by insuring that all the items that make the service function so well are readily available for use by the clergy, acolytes, Lectors, Eucharistic ministers, and the Greeters. We treasure our place in the St. Paul’s Parish family as we prepare for all worship services as we gather together to worship and praise our Lord.
In addition, the Altar Guild, plays a key role in “the greening” (decorating) of the church at Christmas (and later, the UN-greening or cleaning up.) During Holy Week, just prior to Easter, we create the Garden of Repose for the vigil, and prepare the church for the seven special services of Holy Week, beginning on Wednesday with Tenebrae and running each consecutive day and/or night through the last service on Easter Sunday.
The Altar Guild normally conducts nine monthly meetings, usually the second Saturday of each month, at 9 a.m. at St. Paul’s. Membership is open to any communicant in good standing who is willing to be trained in the proper procedures and wishes to serve our Lord in a quiet but very meaningful and reverent way. For additional information, please contact our Rector, or John Rowe or any Altar Guild member.
