The content is being updated to reflect the current norms of the Church as provided by the third edition of The Roman Missal, the General Instruction of the Roman Missal, Redemptionis Sacramentum, Built of Living Stones, and Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship.
Contents include a theology of the Church, history of the sacristy, the ministry of the sacristan, equipping the church, equipping the sacristy, and checklists for all rites and liturgies of the Church.
