Sacristans set up for daily Mass, funerals and weddings with the proper sacramentals for the celebrant. They are responsible for cleaning and dusting the sanctuary and altars, for replacing candles, and for keeping both the priests' albs and servers' robes clean and repaired.
Sacristans also work with the Art and Environment committee to make the parish a beautiful, welcoming place for all who come to worship.
There are many opportunities to volunteer as it takes many hands working together to assist in this ministry. Consider joining the sacristans on Friday mornings after the 8:00 am Mass. Volunteers help with light dusting, watering, filling water fonts, maintaining the flower arrangements and any other details that ready the church for the weekend Masses.
