Weekly Sacristans care for the church on a weekly basis. Responsibilities include tending to plants, caring for vestments, the altar area and the reservation chapel. Skills needed: love of plants and their care, ironing and cleaning.
Weekday Sacristans set the table for My Lord’s Banquet, chalice, pall, bread plate, cruets, lights, sound system and candles. Responsibilities also include: replace burned out candles in the adoration chapel, and put everything in its place after Mass. A detailed job description is located in the sacristy.
This ministry is on a rotation and fill-in when needed. It is a humbling and honored experience.
