What is a Verger?

Vergers have long played an important role in worship in many Anglican and Episcopal churches. Verger comes from the word "verge," a staff carried by the verger in church services. A verger provides support for all who participate in worship and ensures that the service runs smoothly. Some call vergers "the concierges of the church."
