The Sacristan undertakes the overall preparation of all liturgical celebrations, including daily Mass, weekend Masses, weddings, and funerals. The Sacristan arranges the books needed for the celebration as well as chalice, cruets, ciboria, linens, oils, processional cross and candles. The Sacristan also makes sure that the vestments, church furnishings, liturgical vessels and decorative objects are kept in good condition and utilized appropriately. The Sacristan also coordinates with the Greeters, Ushers, Lectors, Altar Servers and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion to ensure that all necessary ministerial roles are fulfilled at each liturgy.
