The function of proclaiming the Word of God is not one to be undertaken lightly. The reader should not only have a deep, personal love for the sacred text but should also lead the people to a similar love and appreciation of the holy book. 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.
New readers are always welcome and if you are interested you should contact the parish priest in the first instance.
