A sacristin is an assistant to the priest and prepares everything needed for the Mass. Whether it is a novena, holy hour, funeral, marriage, or a special feast day, the sacristan is in charge of preparing for it.
In addition, the sacristan keeps the sacristy organized, orders supplies, and takes care of the albs, vestments, and sacred vessels. Flowers are cared for on the altar, and the missals are kept tidy in the pews.
Because of the large number of duties that a sacristan performs, we are always looking for more volunteers.
