Sacristan Report January 2014

by Sub Dn John Segvich

In 2013, we vested the altar for each liturgical season and incorporated the liturgical items into our services (hand censer & new embroidered Communion cloths) that Father Andrew brought back from Mount Athos. In addition, Father began to repair the LED torches. Earlier in the year, we cleaned and prepared the altar and sacristy for Pascha. During 2014, we should consider adding a few items to enhance our liturgical services:

• Icon print of the Expulsion of Adam from Paradise for Forgiveness Sunday.
• Smaller triple candlestick for Theophany.
• A second liturgical towel - we have 2 now, the older towel needs to be retired. • A towel bar on the wall near the baptismal font or in the vestment room for drying liturgical covers and towels.
• Some new vestments for Protodeacon Andrew (red, etc.) - some of his vestments are worn out.
• Additional shelf space for storage of items in sacristy - in particular we need more space for books and some safe places for other items.

In 2014, we will again thoroughly clean the altar and sacristy as we prepare for Pascha. In terms of general supplies, our supply of liquid paraffin and incense is adequate.
