The ministry of Sacristan is open to men and women who are fully initiated into

the Catholic Church, have a demonstrated ability to be attentive to detail and

have a working knowledge and appreciation for the Order of the Mass. Having a

privileged role of preparing for the celebration of Mass at St Patrick, our

Sacristans, through their reverence and devotion, witness to Christ’s Real

Presence in the Eucharist. Assumed in this ministry is a commitment to prayer

and ongoing training and formation.

Luke 22:8

He sent out Peter and John, instructing them, “Go and make preparations 

for us to eat the Passover.”  

General Instruction of the Roman Missal 105 and 110

“A liturgical function is also exercised by the sacristan, who diligently arranges

the liturgical books, the vestments, and other things that are necessary for the

celebration of Mass. There should be harmony and diligence among all those

involved in the effective preparation of each liturgical celebration in accordance

with the Missal and other liturgical books, both as regards the rites and as

regards the pastoral and musical aspects. However, the Priest who presides at

the celebration always retains the right of arranging those things that pertain to

him.
