Sacristan Report January 2004
The past year has seen an improvement in the attitudes of the altar servers, however, in the areas of following church rubrics, conducting ones self in a manner of respect for liturgical practices and following direction, there still remains room for improvement. This year we are planning A and B teams which will solve the large number of servers on the altar at one time. We had two altar boy meetings last year and plan to have more this year. Being on time is a big issue and needs to be addressed with the servers and their parents to get them to the Church when the service starts. We still need new altar server vestments.
The renovation has begun on the former kitchen area and hopefully it will be complete this year. The Matins canon books are complete and being used for special services. Fathers will need a way of getting heated water into the baptismal font and a better way of draining it out.
