Become a Sacristan

All young ladies in 6th-12th grade are invited to be a part of our teen sacristan program. Sacristans are responsible for preparing the sacred vessels and vestments used in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. As a sign of their ministry in the preparation of the altar, the Sacristans carry up the gifts at Mass. Sacristans also ring the outside bells at the Consecration, calling all of the community’s attention to the moment the presence of Christ among us is made real in the Eucharist.
Many female saints throughout history, including St. Therese of Lisieux, were sacristans. St. Therese even wrote a beautiful poem about being a sacristan, including the beautiful verse:
Here below, Our sweet office is to prepare for the altar the bread and wine of the Sacrifice which brings to Earth, Heaven!
A sacristan must be in 6th grade or older and a practicing Catholic. This means that she follows God's commandments by participating each week in Sunday Mass and frequenting the Sacrament of Reconciliation. A sacristan must have received the sacraments of Baptism, First Reconciliation, and First Holy Communion. Any young lady wishing to join this beautiful ministry should contact Catherine Horvath at
The Sacristan’s Prayer:
O Lord, you have called me to serve you in the sanctuary of your church. Guide my hands and my steps that I may fulfill my duties with grace and devotion. Inspire me to put things in good order that our worship may reflect your holiness. Bless all who minister in our parish, in this altar, all who listen to your Word, all who receive the Holy Sacrament, that we may grow in grace, and become partakers of eternal life, through Jesus Christ, your Son. Amen.
