Sacristans prepare the sacred vessels and linens for Mass, and ensure, now via a Mass Captain, there are enough liturgical ministers (Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Altar Servers, etc.) to make the Mass run smoothly. The initial training workshop is mandatory and ongoing training with a current Sacristan is expected.
As of April 1, 2014 the schedules will no longer be posted on the web. The scheduling is now done via "Ministry Scheduler" software and those serving have their own access direct via the web to the scheduling software. Requests for changes, substitutes, vacation blocks, etc. are all done online via the scheduling software.
As a reminder, if you do need a substitute, please go online at least TWO DAYS prior to request a replacement. Freda Breed, Director of Music/Liturgy reprints the assignments and places in the Altar Server room for reference.
For more information please contact: Freda Breed at the parish office.
