Minsters of the word

readers image

We as lay people are called by God through the Church to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ. The reader in any liturgical celebration proclaims the Word of God.

The reader's task is to proclaim those parts of the Word of God which make way for the Gospel, prepare for it and set the scene so that the Gospel can be heard and take root in the hearts of the community.

In practical terms the reader must prepare well to ensure that the Word is heard, understood and appreciated. Ministers of the Word are the instrument of the personal dialogue between God and His people. 
We are constantly looking for volunteers to read. If interested please contact the parish office on 8384418
