    What is 'alter-guild lady'?

    The altar-guild ladies cut great, fragrant bouquets of roses to decorate the church and altar, filling the inte-rior with the color and perfume of love.
    (There are roses around the church)

    A guild would mean a society or group- so that's their job or duty.
