Our Sacristans perform a very important and essential ministry for our parish.  Sacristans help the Priest, Deacons and our Liturgical Ministers prepare for our liturgies.  They usually arrive thirty minutes prior to Mass and depart about fifteen minutes afterward.  Sacristans ensure that all of the ministers (Readers, Eucharistic Ministers, Altar Servers) are present and prepared to execute their duties for the Mass.  They work with the Priest and Deacon to position everything that is needed for the liturgy (hosts, wine, chalices, etc.).  Needless to say our Sacristans at St. Joan of Arc and phenomenal we depend upon them!   If you are interested in becoming a Sacristan, please contact Deacon Ray at
