Readers are just one of the different ministries that assist in the celebration of the Mass. They contribute to the worship of the community and fulfill the responsibility that comes with Baptism by proclaiming the Word of God to the congregation in the Old Testament and Epistle readings.
Special training is required to assist ministers in understanding their specific roles and responsibilities. These trainings are ongoing and are held at either St. Athanasius & St. John's Church or Our Lady of the Snows.
Beyond the training, Readers are provided with the materials necessary to prepare themselves for proclaiming God's Word.
