How to serve at the Tridentine Mass

BEFORE MASS

Arrive in the Sacristy ten minutes before time.

If only all our servers would do this, you will often see them doing a run and genuflect, because they are late (and sorry ladies, but is always the girls :stuck_out_tongue: )

Funny, it is always the boys in my parish and as the sacristan I see it all the time.

Why would a sacristan have a better view of this than a typical “pew-sitter”?

Because I am the one who most often lets the alter servers in a sees what time they really arrive and I am the one who lights the candles when the alter servers coming running into the sacrasity with scant minutes to spare.
