Sacristant is responsible for keeping the sacristy in order and stocked. The sacristy is the room in which all the sacred vestments and vessels required for Qurbana are kept. In the sacristy the priest will get vested (dressed) for celebrating the Holy Qurbana. Along with the priest the altar servers will also get vested and prepared for the Qurbana.

A message devoted for Altar Boys:
To be Christ’s page at the altar, To serve Him freely there. Where even the Angels falter, Bowed low in reverent prayer.
To touch the throne most holy, To hand the gifts for the feast, To see Him meekly, lowly, Descend at the word of the priest.
To hear man’s poor petition, To sound the silver bell, When He in sweet submission, Comes down with us to dwell.
No grander mission surely Could Saints or men enjoy; No heart should love more purely, Than yours my altar boy.
God bless you, lad, forever, And keep you in His care, And Guard you that you never Belie the robes you wear.
For white bespeaks untainted A heart both tried and true; And red tolls love the sainted The holy martyrs knew.
Throughout life, then, endeavor God’s graces to employ; And be in heart forever A holy altar boy.
