Participating in the Ministry of Sacristan is a privilege and an honor. As a Sacristan, your duties include preparing the sacred vessels and other important items for use on the altar during the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Following Mass, your duties include cleaning the Credence Table, washing  the vessels, and putting alll related items away in specific locations in the Sacristy.

As a Sacristan, you show the Assembly how important this Ministry is to you by dressing appropriately, respectfully approaching the altar by bowing reverently, and by actively participating in the Mass and other parish activities. It is important that you arrive at least 30 minutes piror to Mass in order to allow a comfortable time for preparation for the Liturgy of the Eucharist.

Attention to detail is a must for this Ministry. Sacristans are assigned a Mass time and month according to preferences, to the greatest extent possible. Sacristans are asked to arrange for a substitute if illness or an unexpected absence occurs.

Sacristans are also expected to provide their expertise and service for additional Holiday and Holy Day Mass times as those requests and opportunities become available through the Sacristan Ministry leader.

St. Patrick Church relies on the time, talent and treasure of those persons participating in the Sacristan Ministry, and thanks you for the commitment of your God-given talent.
