Specific instructions on how to launder and iron the corporal purificator, pall, and other linens are also included.

Publishers Description
This course offers the best education available to altar guild members and is also extremely informative for all laity. This comprehensive training course presents "modules" of easy-to-digest information, which include everything any member would need to know about what are humorously termed the "props", the "stage", the "holy hardware", the "costumes", and other aspects of the Passion Play we all attend on Sunday.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Extremely helpful  Jul 28, 2007
I am an Altar Guild directress. I have bought several Altar Guild manuals, but find this to be the most useful. It is written in a straight forward, easy to understand manner. It is perfect for the beginner. When I train new members, I loan them the book. I invite them to browse through it, but I also point out the sections I "require" them to be familiar with. Somewhere along the line, my copy went missing, and I promptly replaced it. I would not be without it. It is up to date, no nonsense, and yet does not lose sight of the spiritual reasons behind our "heavenly housekeeping."
Excellent educational resource!  Jan 14, 2000
An excellent, thorough, comprehensive guide to altar guild training and education. Well-organized and easy to use.
Very good reading for all altar guild members .  Oct 3, 1999
The self paced study of knowledge and skills are very helpful and well needed in order to be an efficent altar guild member. I recommended this book to the directress of the altar guild and all the altar guild members want a copy of this book.
