LADIES AND LIPSTICK

Please, this is a reminder for ladies to ‘blot their lips’ before taking the wine at Communion.  The newer lipsticks are leaving a hard to remove stain on the altar linens, when we wipe the chalice, after serving wine at Communion.  We kindly ask you to become mindful about the lipstick please. 

Thank you,   – Altar Guild
