Ministers of the Word

Each Minister of the Word fulfils a very important role at Mass, reading from the Lectionary to proclaim the Word and share God’s message to make it clearer to those who are listening.

There is a rota of Readers for the weekend Masses, to include Signers for the Deaf and Voiceover readers for any Deaf Ministers of the Word. We have many Ministers of the Word in the parish, aged 8 to 80! Training is provided.

We have an annual Commissioning Service during the weekend Masses and there is a Retreat Day each year.

New Readers are always welcome. Anyone wishing to be considered should email Barbara Thomas b.thomas@sphilipevans.co.uk or complete a form (there is a supply of these forms and envelopes attached to the noticeboard), put the form in an envelope addressed to Barbara Thomas and leave it on the table in the foyer to the right of the doors into the church. Barbara will contact you and arrange training.
