The St. Martinai??i??s Altar Guild exists to assist the clergy and to carry out the wishes of the Rector in regard to the care and preparation of the Altar. Members of the Altar Guild are appointed by the Rector and must earnestly dedicate themselves to their work by placing love for Christ above all personal feelings and by working together with the clergy and fellow members in peace, devotion, and loyalty. The external manifestation of this spirit is the cleanliness,punctuality, care, and reverence with which members carry out the duties that support worship in God’s house.
