Sacristan Ministry

The Sacristan must first be trained and installed as an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion. Under the general direction of the clergy, the Sacristan undertakes the overall preparation of liturgical celebrations, including all that is needed for special days such as Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday.

The Sacristan also prepares the altar, vestments, church furnishings, liturgical vessels, cruets, chalices, ciboria, linens, oils, processional crosses, and candles.
