Sacristans devote their services throughout the entire Liturgy to ensure the Liturgy runs smoothly. The sacred duties of a Sacristan include: coordinating all Liturgical Ministries, preparing the church for Liturgy, and placing everything necessary for Mass on the credence and gift tables before the beginning of Mass. Sacristans are also responsible for returning the Sacristy to order at the end of each Liturgy. Training is provided by the Parish. This ministry is by invitation only.
