Ministers of the Word (Readers)

Those who come forward to read the Scriptures at Mass have a central role in our weekly Act of worship. They speak God's word to his people - his saving message as given through the prophets, and the Gospel writers.

If you were a reader in your previous parish or think you would like to exercise this ministry, please see one of the priests or Margaret Querstret who is our co-ordinator for Readers.  It is expected that readers prepare before the Mass at which they are rostered to read so that the full meaning from Readings can be conveyed in a clear voice. The monthly rota is prepared from our parish office and they appreciate being forewarned of any holiday dates etc when planning the rotas throughout the year.
