WHAT DOES CRUCIFER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Crucifer

A crucifer is, in some Christian churches, a person appointed to carry the church's processional cross, a cross or crucifix with a long staff, during processions at the beginning and end of the service. However, while it is used in several different denominations, the term is most common within Anglican churches. The term "crucifer" comes from the Latin crux and ferre. It thus literally means "cross-bearer". Before the Roman Catholic reforms of the Second Vatican Council, the function of the crucifer was carried out by a subdeacon.
