The Verger's main duty ceremonially is to lead the procession. Vergers carry the staff of their office (called a Virge) and effectively point the way of the procession. Vergers must be attentive to the details of the liturgy and should be available to assist the clergy with liturgical details.
For more information on how to volunteer as a Verger, call the church office at 901-937-3830, or contact Fr. John.
