This Ministry washes the altar linens used during the Mass. Each volunteer is scheduled for one week and it is their task to wash the Purificators (white cloths) used to purify the cup after consumption of the consecrated wine during Mass. They also wash the Corporal (larger white cloth) used on the altar when consecrated wine has been spilled on it. They may also wash the smaller altar cloth if necessary. There is a special way to launder and fold and press the linens and each person is taught how to do this.
