Altar Linen Ministry

Altar Linen Ministry

Each week, the altar linens are gathered, washed and returned to the church in preparation for the following weekend’s Masses. Most weeks, only the purificators (cloth napkins used with each chalice) need washing and ironing, but occasionally there is an altar cloth or alb (priest vestment) as well.


Time commitment:

Usually a monthly commitment by pre-set schedule (i.e. second Sunday of the month). Flexibility is available.



Willingness to pick up and return the linens in time for the following weekend


Training: Minimal
