Administer Priesthood Ordinances


“He took of the bread and brake and blessed it; and he gave unto the disciples and commanded that they should eat” (3 Nephi 18:3).
  • Read Doctrine and Covenants 38:42. The command “Be ye clean that bear the vessels of the Lord” has special meaning as you fulfill your duty to prepare the sacrament. Anciently a group of priests carried vessels—bowls or basins—to be used in the temple (see Ezra 1:5–11). Today you handle vessels that contain the sacramental bread and water in remembrance of the Atonement of Jesus Christ.

  • Read Matthew 26:26–28. In the space below, write your answers to these questions:

    1. 1.

      What can you do to prepare the sacrament in a reverent and dignified manner (even though most people will not see you perform this duty)?

    2. 2.

      How can you set a good example for the deacons when you are asked to pass the sacrament?
