Prayerful reflection before Mass
This is a gentle reminder that there have been multiple complaints of late regarding the noise in the Sacristy prior to Mass. This should be a time of prayerful reflection prior to Mass and only those participating in the Liturgy should be in the Sacristy. All participants on the schedule, i.e., Servers, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, Ushers and Greeters should be in place no later than 20 minutes prior to the start of Mass. Many of the disruptions that seem to be occurring are that those participating don't arrive until the last minute, people are scrambling to find replacements and all of this results in unnecessary, noisy chaos. Please be respectful in the Sacristy prior to Mass and observe the arrival time set out in the Liturgical Guidelines. Fr. Alex has approved this email. Thank you.
