Sacristans

These are the people who do the behind the scenes preparation for Liturgical celebrations. The vestments, and everything related to Mass are cleaned and readied. They also ensure that we have sufficient items in stock for Liturgy. We require committed people who are willing to help on Saturday mornings. A desire to learn more about Liturgy is important.
