The Ministry of the Reader proclaims God's living Word to all who are gathered for Mass.
Having Ministers of the Word achieves a number of aims:
- It indicates the role we all have to 'proclaim' God's Word in our daily lives by the witness we give through our Christian living: by what we say, do and who we are (and are becoming!)
- By involving the congregation it expresses more fully the role we all have in the liturgical celebration (Mass, Adoration, Devotions etc.....)
- By having different people proclaiming God's Word creates a variety of voices rather than 'one' person/voice
There is a rota of readers for both St Joseph's and St Edmund's. Training and preparation takes place a couple of times a year.
Volunteers always requied..............
