Becoming a sacristan requires the most time commitment, but without a sacristan the liturgy simply would not happen! The sacristan prepares all of the items for liturgy, from cups and plates to vestments and lights. They assist in countless ways at the liturgy. 

  • Age requirement: Confirmed Catholic, high school and older; teacher recommendation required.  This ministry requires a high level of responsibility.  Parents may serve as sacristans with their older children as assistants.
  • Commitment: one training sessions plus shadowing of an experienced sacristan for two or three masses; serve on average one or two Sundays per month.
