By definition a “Sacristan” is defined as a “person in charge of the sacristy and church-related ceremonial equipment”. A sacristy is a room for keeping liturgical vestments (such as the priests’ albs, stoles and chasubles; and deacons’ albs, stoles and dalmatics) and other church furnishings, sacred vessels, and ritual books.
A Sacristan must be a baptised Catholic in good standing and a registered contributing member of the Parish. Knowledgeable of the liturgy rites. Able to work and communicate well with others. Be a “team member” and a “team player”. Is able to find spiritual nourishment and enrichment within the ministry.
