Sacristan Report January 2013

by Sub Dn John Segvich

Serving Father Andrew, Protodeacon Andrew and the Body of Christ that is St. Luke Parish continues to be an honor and source of great joy. I endeavor to keep the altar area clean and in good order, the liturgical objects in their proper place and handle them with reverence. As subdeacon, I especially focus on keeping things running smoothly during liturgical services so Father Andrew and Protodeacon Andrew can focus on their ministries. I also assist Peter Tatooles with directing the altar servers. We added the large torches to the altar during 2012 and converted the smaller torches to the pre-filled paraffin candles, which seem to be working well for us. To enrich our liturgical services, we might consider purchasing a smaller troitsa (three-branched candle) for Theophany. In addition, I assist with recruiting men to hold the cloth during the distribution of the Holy Eucharist.
