Sacristans play a crucial role for liturgical celebrations as they are entrusted with ensuring everything necessary is available for these celebrations. Within our partner parishes of Connellsville, as in all churches, much of their ministry occurs ”behind the scenes.”
From the changing of altar linens with appropriate seasonal motifs, to polishing candlesticks, and setting out sacred vessels for Mass, sacristans are called upon for a variety of duties. Many times the sacristan's duties may be shared among a variety of individuals with each responsible for different aspects of the ministry.
Anyone wishing to become involved in this special work in service to the liturgy is invited to call the parish office. Individuals of high school age and above are invited to share in this wonderful service.
