A Catholic Church of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Youngstown, Ohio

Sacristy Ministry


There are many facets to this needed ministry. Among them are assisting the pastor and visiting priests for the celebration of Mass and other services. The sacristan helps prepare for Holy Day masses and services and is present for weddings and funerals, supporting families in a variety of ways. The sacristan duties include but are not limited to monitoring supplies used for the Sacred Liturgy, working with the Nave Crew in keeping the areas near the altar clean and in order, monitoring floral arrangements and helping to maintain the security of the church.
