Sacristans set God’s table at the Saturday night and Sunday Masses, as well as at the masses for special feast days and solemnities. Sacristans arrive 45 minutes – 1 hour prior to mass to prepare the church itself—from turning on the lights, lighting the candles, and unlocking the doors to setting out the vessels and books for the priest to use at mass. The sacristan assists during the liturgy if needed by the priest, and supports the altar servers in their roles.
We are always in need of Sacristans. If you would like to volunteer in this ministry, call the parish office to have someone contact you.
