Liturgical » Sacristans


For liturgy to be engaging and to call forth full, conscious and active participation from the assembly, careful preparation and organization is necessary. In light of the participatory quality of the liturgy, everyone attending trusts that those involved in the leadership roles of the liturgy are preparing effectively and thoroughly. This trust makes it possible for the community to act as one body and pray themselves together into the vision of God’s Kingdom.

At St. Mark, this careful preparation begins with the sacristan, the person or persons who have responsibility for the reverent care of the liturgical books, vessels, vestments, linens and all other objects used in the community’s ritual prayer. A well-organized sacristy is the beginning of a well-organized liturgy.
