ARE YOU WILLING TO BE A LECTOR? Lectors proclaim the Word of the Lord at all Masses.  Lectors, depending on availability, are normally asked to serve once a month at the Mass of their choice.  As lectors are not always available due to family or work requirements, it may be necessary for lectors to be scheduled more often than once a month.  Currently 4 lectors serve at the Saturday 5 pm Mass; 9 lectors for the 8 am Mass and 6 lectors for the 10 am Mass.  More volunteers are needed at all Masses especially the Saturday 5 pm and Sunday 10 am.  If you are willing to become a lector, please email Frank dos Remedios.  Training will be provided.  Please prayerfully consider this appeal as your parish needs you.

LITURGICAL MINISTER SCHEDULE

The celebration of the liturgy is central to the life of our parish community. 

It is “the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the fount from which all the Church’s power flows” (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, 1963).
