The Sacristan Ministry is responsible for preparing the sacred space prior to Mass. The Sacristan arrives thirty minutes prior to Mass in order to ensure that the altar area is prepared for the Eucharist. Sacristans prepare the proper amount of bread and wine that will be consecrated during Mass. They prepare the sacramentary, vessels, check the presider microphone, and assist the altar server preparation if necessary.
The Altar Linen Ministry is a group committed to laundering and ironing small altar linens. These linens include the purificators, corporals, hand towels, and altar cloth on occasion.
