Sacristans quietly do the Lord’s work behind the scenes. Since they prepare for our liturgies ahead of time, everything is at hand for our Masses.

Job Description:
Sacristans maintain the candles, put out the utensils and linens needed for Masses and see that all that is needed at a particular Mass is available.

Gifts that are Needed and Developed for this Ministry:
Neatness and organization are important.

Time Frame:
Sacristans sign up on a schedule for available weeks. Those who are assigned meet every Saturday morning at 8:30 AM for 30 minutes to set up for Mass.

Benefits for the Volunteer:
This behind the scene ministry brings to mind the words of Jesus when he said we should not do good works to be noticed. The satisfaction of a job well done for the better function of the liturgy is reward in itself.
