Altar Society

Members of the Altar Society are called Sacristans.  Sacristans are the people who assist with caring for the needs of the Sanctuary/Sacristy in church. Duties include watering and maintaining all the flowers/plants, dusting/polishing/cleaning, launder/iron and repair of altar and server linens, cleaning the holy water fonts, and maintaining all candles. They take care of ordering flowers, hosts, wine and candles. The Head Sacristan reports monthly to the members of the Ladies Sodality, it's parent organization.  Please consider joining this society; they are always looking for more parishioners to assist them in taking care of the Sanctuary/Sacristy in church.  Membership to the Ladies Sodality is not required.  They meet every Tuesday morning at 9:30 in the Sacristy.
