The Stewardess Board is responsible for assisting the stewards in the discharge of their duties, as they relate to Baptism and Holy Communion, by keeping the linen clean, dressing the altar, keeping the serving utensils polished and clean and preparing for Baptism.

 

Stewardess Board meetings are held on the Saturday before the 1st Sunday of each month.
