The Laundry Ministry has two opportunities for participation. One group of ministers is responsible for washing the white hand towels, and washing and ironing the purificators (the small white linens primarily used to wipe the chalices during Holy Communion). Ministers sign up for one month a year and instructions are provided.
The other part of the Laundry Ministry involves washing and ironing the altar server’s albs from both Divine Mercy Church and Immaculate Conception Church. This is done on an “as needed” basis. Albs with wax or wine stains get taken to the dry cleaner’s for professional cleaning.
