Readying the Lord's House for Worship
Sacristans assist "behind the scenes" with the preparation and celebration of the Mass. They are generally in charge of facilities, environment, volunteers and items used in the Mass.
It is important for sacristans to have a knowledge of and dedication to the liturgy. Sacristans must be attentive to detail and be flexible during the celebration. This service supports the sacramental life of the parish; a sacristan serves at each celebration of Mass.
St. Mary's Church Sacristan Handbook
Sacristans are asked to attend Mass when scheduled. The quarterly schedules are available in the Gathering Space and on-line. If unable to serve in this role when scheduled, it is the Sacristan’s responsibility to call another Sacristan to fill-in.
