Saying “hello” to parishioners and newcomers may seem like a small thing, but if you were a person walking through the doors of St. David’s and you were feeling discouraged or alone, that welcoming smile could be a sign that a loving community exists within the walls of our parish. A Welcome Ministry volunteer commits to greeting at one church service one Sunday a month.

The Guild of Saint Joseph or Arimathaea
The Guild of Saint Joseph of Arimathaea is a guild established in July 2002 by the parishioners of St. David’s and supported by the clergy. The primary purpose of the guild is to provide the staffing necessary to conduct a funeral at St. David’s observing the canons of the Episcopal Church and the rubric’s of the rector.
Currently there are twenty (24) members and the guild is hoping to add additional members. The guild is open to anyone who feels called to this ministry and will train anyone interested; no prior experience is necessary. We will continue our policy of training current members that wish to learn different responsibilities and broaden their knowledge.
