The role of Sacristan is very much that of a housekeeper such as St. Martha in the Gospel, however also includes a contemplative side like her sister Mary in the preparation for mass.
Duties include maintaining of the candles, altar cloths and linens and caring for the Holy vessels.
We prepare the church for all masses and that includes the special seasons of Easter and Christmas as well as special occasions such as weddings and funerals.
It does require commitment as well attention to detail and training will be provided. This richly rewarding ministry affords you a greater understanding of the mass, liturgy and all it entails, and a greater love for the Eucharist.
