It sounds like your Parish has it right.  The rail cloth must be treated in such a way that any particle landing on it will make its way down to the top of the railing, which is suppose to be at least 6 inches wide I believe.  After communion the acolytes are to fold the cloth rather than flip it, thus keeping all particles secure.
