is very little that the sacristan can prepare for the administration of
the Sacrament of Extreme Unction. He should have ever at hand a supply
of clean cotton upon which the priest may readily draw whenever needed.
Also see to it that the holy water container is well filled and that
the priest may easily obtain blessed candles when he needs them.
Should the priest bring
Holy Communion or Viaticum to the sick or dying person and go to the
church to get the Blessed Sacrament, the sacristan should prepare as
(1) Light two candles upon the altar.
(2) Have burse and tabernacle key at hand.
(3) White stole. (However, priests usually have pocket stole for such occasions.)
A supply of blessed candles for sick call purposes should always be on hand to supply the faithful as occasion demands.
