The responsibilities of the sacristan focus on preparation for church services. This includes, opening the church one-hour before a service, preparing the altar and vestments, ensuring that there are an appropriate number of hosts in the tabernacle and that the correct books are available for the reader. The sacristan is also responsible for ensuring that the AC/heat is turned on prior to mass and set for a comfortable temperature. If you are interested in serving as a sacristan, please contact the rectory office.
