What we do

St. Anne's Parish Altar Society consists of over one hundred members on 14 teams with a captain assigned to each team.  Teams take turns cleaning both St. Anne's church and Holy Cross Church.


At St. Anne's Church, one team will meet on Saturday morning.  Cleaning involves sweeping, mopping, vacuuming and polishing a few pieces of furniture and many more miscellaneous cleaning.


Holy Cross church is cleaned every other month on Saturday mornings. Only the pews are cleaned and two teams will meet to do this.



We have 3 meetings per year, Lent, Summer and Advent.



Dues are $20.00 per year.


Fund Raisers

We have 2 bake sales a year which includes a membership drive.


How Funds are Used

Funds collected from the bake sale, membership drive and dues are used to purchase cleaning materials, purchase new vacuum cleaners as needed, flowers for the altar during Christmas and Easter, and miscellaneous items needed for the sacristy. 


Volunteers Needed

More volunteers are needed, especially the younger age to help with the heavier cleaning. Please join us to keep our Lord's  house clean.
