Sacristans Needed


We are in need of Sacristans at our weekend Masses – men and women who do the quiet work of preparing our sacred space for Mass. Sacristans assist in the work of preparing the altar for the celebration of Mass, as well as the cleaning up and securing of items that are necessary afterward.

The term “Sacristan” comes from the Latin word, “sacer,” which means sacred. Sacristans are often behind the scene prayerful ministers that bring to mind the words of Jesus when He said we should not do good works just to gain rewards (Matthew 6:1).

If you are a Confirmed Catholic, can spare a little time before and after Mass, and feel called to serve in this capacity, please contact Liz at: lparrotte@sjcmmd.org for more information. Training will be provided and you will be able to select the frequency that you would like to serve. Newly confirmed teens are encouraged to serve!

Many thanks to those who responded so quickly to the call for Sacristans at our daily Masses! We are so very appreciative of this amazing response. More volunteers are always welcome.

Note: the roles of Mass Coordinator and Sacristan are being separated, details TBD. For more information on our Sacristan/Mass Coordinator ministry click here.
