The Cathedral Sacristan sacristan

Maureen Yeats

Sacristans have the highly-detailed, behind-the-scenes task of keeping a church's services running smoothly.

They are in charge of the sacristy, where all the church's ecclesiastical vestments and utensils are stored. At All Saints it is a small room of ornate wood behind St. Stephen's Chapel.

Their responsibilities include replenishing supplies from microphones to Communion wafers, dry cleaning vestments, distributing leaflets to clergy, marking the Altar Missals and Gospel Book, refilling votive candle holders and setting out chalices, linens and all items needed for the Eucharist.

Maureen Yeats has been the sacristan at All Saints Cathedral since 2007. “I see the role of Sacristan as being 'a servant of the servants of God' in that, by doing what needs to be done to the best of my ability, the worship services flow smoothly and without distractions,” she says.
