Readers are committed to the Ministry of the Word. God’s Word is alive, and the reader is the person who brings it to life for the people. Readers demonstrate their love for the Word by prayerfully using oral communication skills to allow their personal faith to be shaped by the Word and to share this as proclamation in true humility. Readers are needed for weekday and Sunday Masses.
The reader must be able to commit sufficient quality time for personal preparation and prayer with the assigned reading for the week. Ongoing formation in this ministry includes attendance at preparation meetings on the Tuesday prior to Sunday assignments and reflection days and scripture study classes throughout the year. Fingerprinting and Diocesan Safe Environment training are also required.
If you have good oral communication skills and a real love for the Word of God, pray and reflect on whether you feel called to proclaim the Word. If so, perhaps you should apply for this ministry. After all, as Christians we are all called to proclaim Christ to the world.
