SACRISTANS

What does a sacristan do?
As Sacristan, there are three main roles: Security–(of the sacristy and most importantly, the Eucharist), Mass Set Up and Clean Up. The Sacristan will serve both roles each time they are Sacristan. 

Security: The Sacristan is responsible for assuring proper treatment of the Holy Species, namely that of the Sacred Blood and Blessed Sacrament during and after the celebration. They are also responsible for keeping the Holy Tabernacle secure.

Mass set up and clean up vary slightly depending on the individual Mass and presider. At every Mass, they are responsible for setting up for both Liturgy of the Word and Liturgy of the Eucharist which means preparing all the books, vessels, offertory, and incense when appropriate.
