The Sacristans comprise a group of parish ministers who care for the Sanctuary and Sacristy. When you walk into St. Ann or St. James to attend Mass, you will observe all the details necessary to celebrate Mass. The duties of the sacristans include replacement of candles, maintaining sacred vessels and vestments, cleaning and/or filling all the items used at Mass such as cruets, linens, etc. Every element in the sanctuary is in order, clean and ready for a Eucharistic celebration. Under the guidance of ministry leader Gerrie Szewczyk, our Sacristans make sure the proper vessels, altar cloths, and vestments are used for each liturgical season and special Masses. Please call the Parish Office if you are interested in finding out more about this indispensable ministry.
