Parish Life Liturgy - Sacristans


Physical elements needed for the Mass

Sacristans serve the assembly by preparing all the physical elements needed for the Mass. They prepare the vessels for the Eucharistic Liturgy, put out appropriate quantities of bread and wine, assist the Presider and other ministers in vesting, ensure that the books are properly placed, and ensure that there are enough Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, and Altar Servers for the Mass. Sacristans will be trained in this ministry as well as Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. Sacristans are required to be at Mass a half hour before Mass starts to allow sufficient time to set everything up for the Mass.

There is currently a great need for Sacristans at all Masses. Prayerfully consider this ministry and if you are interested, please contact the Ministry Coordinator, Margie Lanko, at 965-7037.
