Sacristans are seasoned liturgical ministers, familiar with each ministry’s function and practices.
Their service includes setting up the sacred vessels, hosts, wine, bells, etc. needed for each Mass as well as cleaning and putting the vessels away. In addition, the sacristan oversees the sign-in process for all ministers and fills any last minute ministerial vacancies at each Mass. This service assures the dignity and completeness of each liturgical celebration. Our volunteer sacristans are adult men and women that desire to encourage and maintain a prayerful and reverential attitude towards the Eucharist and sanctuary. There is separate training for this volunteer position.
