Altar Serving in the Parish of Doneraile
as they set up the altar before Mass, the servers and others should
continue to genuflect. The exception would be when impeded, such as
carry chalices and the like, when there is danger of dropping them. They
may bow in such a circumstance. Otherwise, at the Offertory and during
the Mass generally, when approaching and departing the altar they bow.
If the tabernacle with the Most Blessed Sacrament is present in the sanctuary, the priest, the deacon, and the other ministers genuflect when they approach the altar and when they depart from it, but not during the celebration of Mass itself. Otherwise all who pass before the Most Blessed Sacrament genuflect, unless they are moving in procession. Ministers carrying the processional cross or candles bow their heads instead of genuflecting.

Formerly this was a raincoat (its Latin name is pluviale "raincoat") used for long processions. Today it is worn by the celebrant during come celebrations (Eucharistic Benediction and for Processions). It is also commonly worn by Deacons in certain circumstance instead of the Dalmatic.
