Sacristans:

A Sacristan is parish volunteer, who maintains the sacred vessels, altar linens, candles, oil, holy water and liturgical items.  All of these items are stored in the work sacristry. 

The St. Peter's sacristans help care for the items that are used in the sanctuary and the chapel.  It is a very quiet and peaceful ministry; the washing and ironing of the linens are done at the volunteer's homes and the putting away of clean linens, picking up the laundry bag of used linens, filling the oil candles, replacing wax candles, filling holy water bowls, replacing the altar table cloths... is all done in the peace and quiet of an empty church. 

For more information about this ministry please call the church office @ 822-3367.
