An ecclesiarch, or sacristan, in the Orthodox Christian Church is an officer of the church who is charged with the care of a church and its properties particularly in monasteries. His position resembles that of a sacrist in the Western Church.

In large monasteries and important churches the ecclesiarch may be assisted by a minor official called a paraecclesiarch.
