Sacristans

Sacristans

Sacristans serve behind the scenes keeping supplies in order (candles, hosts, incense, etc.) and maintaining altar linens, banners, and sacred vestments.  They work closely with the church environment committee decorating with flowers, banners, furnishings and other means to provide a proper worshiping atmosphere. 

Sacristans need to have an awareness of the presence of God in the Eucharist even while working alone or with others changing and enhancing the worshiping atmosphere.  By being responsible for the material things of worship, sacristans grow in appreciation for how liturgy works as a series of signs and symbols. By enabling reverent and prepared celebrations, sacristans create a hospitable house for the church as they ready the room for worship.

Frequently reading the scriptures and leading a prayerful life as well as observing respectful gestures while preparing the house of God are important.
