Members of the St. Ann’s Altar Society at St. Michael the Archangel Church keep the church, narthex, baptistery, and sanctuary tidy throughout the year. Our goal is to meet weekly on Thursdays or Fridays to make sure the Church is clean and ready for weekend Masses.
Depending on the number of workers, we tidy; dust; remove candle wax; polish marble; clean doors, windows, and the confessionals.
The ultimate goal was inspired by our own †Fr. Arcuri. When asked how the sisters keep the convent so fresh and clean he said, “The official term is ‘convent clean’.” We wondered what that meant and he replied, “They clean the corners”.
