You will need to describe the objects and sacred vessels that are used during the Mass, below you will find some of these items with a description, or you can refer to the altar server ministry handbook, for these definitions.
There are four candles on the sanctuary. Two are on the front corners of the altar, and two are at the front corners of the Ambo. The candles at the Ambo are lit before Mass, and used during the procession at the beginning of the Mass, and for the gospel procession.
In preparation for the Liturgy of the Eucharist the candles at the Altar are lit before the candles at the Ambo are extinguished
Always use the candle snuffer, shown here, to extinguish the flame of any candles, do not blow the flame out using your mouth, and always use the snuffer.
The cruet contains water. The cruet, finger bowl and small towel are used during the preparation of the gifts. The cruet is placed on the credence table, along with the bowl, and finger towel before mass begins.
Special notice: After mass the bowl must be emptied, the cruet refilled, and a clean dry towel put back on the credence table for the next mass.
