Dedicated, responsible youth in grades 3 - 8 assist the priest in the celebration of Mass and other worship services; weddings, funerals, confirmation, etc. Periodic meetings will be held for training. 

This is an excellent way for the young people to be involved in the Liturgy, and is a stepping stone to future involvement in the Liturgy, such as Eucharistic Ministers and Lectors.

Sacristan

 Being a sacristan is a very beneficial way to serve your church community, and an active way to participate in Mass. 

The starting point for all sacristans is a deep love for the Eucharist.  Under the general direction of the clergy, the sacristan undertakes the overall preparation for liturgical celebrations.  Specific duties include:

  • Preparing the Holy Eucharist for the celebration of the Mass.  This includes readying the wine, water and bread and putting them in place before the start of Mass.

  • Setting up the altar.  Sacristans may also arrange the Lectionary and lector notebooks.

  • Assisting the altar servers and other liturgical ministers with directions or questions.  Sacristans ensure that all liturgical positions are filled for the Mass.

  • Cleaning the holy materials after Mass. The holy containers for the water, body and blood are cleaned and stored in the sacristy.  Everything is set back in place before sacristans leave the church.
