Ministry of Sacristy

Sacristan

This Ministry involves preparing the worship space for celebrations. Duties include light housekeeping, cleaning of the vessels used in liturgies, maintaining vestments and the Altar Server cassocks and surplices.

Our Sacristan also decorates the altar according to the seasons of the Church.

There are only a few weeks in the year when it is liturgically correct for the sanctuary to be bare, ie. without flowers, etc.

During the rest of the year, we invite your talent and ideas to dress up the area in front of the ambo, altar and tabernacle.
