Master of Ceremonies, or M.C. 

The person present in the liturgy to direct the movements of the various ministers and people involved and to coordinate a sustained ceremonial style throughout. A master of ceremonies, when designated, also takes responsibility for any rehearsals of the liturgy. The term "minister of ceremonies" (not gender-specific or hierarchical in its connotations) may be used instead of the customary term "master of ceremonies."
