In our liturgical worship, certain ministers are in the forefront. Behind every priest or server, cantor or lector, however, there is a group of committed parishioners who faithfully and quietly prepare the church for what takes place. Sacristans are indispensible in their role of setting out the vessels, coordinating with ministries, and setting everything in place. The ministry of sacristan is a true ministry of service, allowing parishioners thoughtfully and prayerfully help prepare for the liturgy.
If you would like more information about sacristans or if you would like to volunteer to serve at weekday or weekend Masses, please contact our Parish Center at (504) 887-7821.
