Sacristans & Mass Preparation

The Sacristans prepare for, and clean up after, all Masses.

They are tasked with the proper treatment, maintenance and safe keeping of the holy books, vessels, offertory, and incense (when used), including ensuring that the tabernacle is secure.

The sacristan is also the Mass coordinator. Before each Mass, he/she must ensure that everything is in order, and that the Altar Servers, Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers are present and ready to serve.

Altar Linen

This important ministry is conducted quietly behind the scenes in the homes of the volunteers. Duties include picking up all soiled linen from the Church, rinsing out the precious body and blood, washing, drying, ironing, and returning the linen to ensure they are always clean for Mass and other liturgies.

This task is usually done fortnightly.

Lectors are servants of the Word of God. Through study and preparation, Lectors proclaim the sacred scriptures with clarity and conviction, providing spiritual nourishment to the Eucharistic assembly.

Lectors for the weekend Masses are scheduled about once a month. Before rostering new lectors, they are required to be initiated into the ministry. This happens once or twice before the individual is rostered.
