The Sacristy is also available to groups of pilgrims who request Holy Mass services at other times. The Sacristy provides pilgrims with everything required in order to celebrate a Holy Mass: chalices, ciboria, hosts, vestments, etc. If there is a large number of priests, each priest is requested to bring his own alb.
