The ministry of Sacristan works behind the scenes. sacristans arrive at church before anyone else- often even the priest/celebrant. Preparing the Holy Eucharist for the celebration of the mass. This includes readying the wine, water, and bread and putting them in place for the start of mass.
Sacristan also cleans the holy materials after mass and ensure that everything is set back in its place in the sacristy before sacristans leave the church.
Sacristans must be responsible, mature, reliable, quick learner, very organized, enthusiastic and willing to help out in any situation. Training will be provided. If you feel called to serve in this ministry, contact the Sacristan Leader.
