Ministers of the Word
In proclaiming the Word of God from sacred scripture, readers exercise their responsibility in mediating the presence of Christ. God speaks to the assembly through them, and the impact of God’s message will depend significantly on their conviction, their preparation and their delivery. The Ministry of Readers requires formation and preparation that is liturgical, biblical and technical, and that is on-going (Celebrating the Mystery of Faith – National Centre for Liturgy)
From time to time, the parish provides a course to train as a Minister of the Word. Information on this course will announced in the parish bulletin. If you are already trained and would be interested in joining the team of parish readers, please contact the Parish Office, telephone 028 9064 2446.
