HAVE YOU ANY IDEA how many hours the Altar Guild put in to make Christmas celebrations happen so beautifully and seamlessly here at Saint John's?  Several individuals spent, literally, days in working to make everything shine, to correctly ready vestments for the season, in cleaning, polishing, candle trimming, and in washing and ironing.  If not, ask around, and then be sure to thank one of them for all the hard work they gave to make everyone's Christmas-tide, and indeed the whole Church Year, beautiful.  To God be the glory, but sincere thanks to the Altar Guild for all their sacrificial giving!
