Sacristans

Sacristans

It is the Sacristan’s role to see to the consistent and proper handling of certain aspects of parish liturgy. In so doing, the Sacristan helps to create a prayerful liturgy for the Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish Community, and allows the priest to give his attention to the prayer and to the pastoral care of the people.

The Sacristan arranges the books needed for the celebration, marking all of the divisions. He or she lays out the vestments and anything else needed for the celebration, such as cruets, chalices, ciboria, linens, oils, processional crosses, candles, etc.

This ministry is open to adults who have celebrated Confirmation, and who are free of any impediments to participating in the sacramental life of the Church.

To become a sacristan or for more information contact the Parish Center.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

As an extraordinary minister of Holy Communion, commonly referred to as a Eucharistic minister or EM, lay people can serve the Catholic Church by distributing Holy Communion during Mass. An EM must be a fully initiated member of the Church (having received the Sacraments of Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation). Eucharistic Ministers serve the Body and Blood of Christ during Mass or Communion Services. This ministry is extremely spiritual and personally fulfilling.
