Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church

Funeral Sacristan and Server

In this ministry you serve as the representative of Our Lady of Lourdes to the families who come to remember, mourn and celebrate the life of their loved one. Responsibilities may include attending to the needs of the family, setting up for liturgy, and assisting the Presider.


Training: Training is provided and you must be at least 16 years of age. You would work with an experienced sacristan until you are confident to serve on your own.

Scheduling: A flexible schedule is a real plus since funerals are scheduled at various times of the day. You would be part of a list of sacristans and contacted on a rotating basis.
