Altar Guild

Mary Wellman & Betty Harris, co-chairs

The Altar Guild currently has nine members who prepare the altar for services at All Saints’. We arrange flowers, fill candles, set up for Holy Eucharist, clean up afterwards, care for linens, and assist with special services such as funerals/memorial services and weddings. We maintain the objects used during worship, polishing brass and silver on a regular basis. Please consider joining us in our “behind-the-scenes” ministry by contacting Betty Harris or Mary Wellman.


If you are interested in giving flowers in memory or in honor of a loved one, in thanksgiving, or to remember one of All Saints’ own “Saints” who may not have family members still active in our church to recall their contributions, contact Susan Molina in the parish office( 252-537-3610 ).She will be glad to assist you in ordering flowers for the altar.  When flowers are donated we like to specify in the weekly bulletin who they are for and who donated them. Because of this, orders for an upcoming Sunday have to be placed by no later than 12:00 noon on Wednesday so Susan can contact the florist we are working with, notify the altar committee and get the information into the bulletin.

The florist will choose the flowers for the arrangements based on cost. Currently the cost for altar flowers is $35.00 per arrangement ($70 total). The florist we are using makes lovely arrangements. If folks are interested in sharing the cost, please have one person act as the contact person and gather the information for all parties involved, and relay the information to Susan .

*Note – special requests will be shared, but keep in mind that customized arrangements are usually priced higher and may require flowers to be ordered directly by the person making the request. Deadlines still apply.*

Once the request is made to the office please send payment. Checks are to be made to All Saints Episcopal Church and dropped in the collection plate or mailed to 635 Hamilton Street, Roanoke Rapids, NC 27870.
