Ministers Of The Word

Ministers of the Word
word “…Still happier those who hear the Word of God and keep it” (Luke 11:28)

Since 1971 our parish has been fortunate in having dedicated Readers who proclaim the Word of God on Sundays and Holy Days in St. Mary’s and Ladychapel and at the Weekday Masses in St. Mary’s.  Their commitment is deeply appreciated as, week after week, we are nourished at the Table of the Word.

Readers are organised on a Team basis.  You may choose which Mass time suits you best and opt to be on the team for that Mass.  Rotas run for an 8-week period and issue in advance, by email.  If a reader is unable to read at the Mass for which they are rostered, they arrange a swop with another reader. 

The commitment required from a Reader is:

  • To prayerfully prepare the readings
  • To be available to read at least once a month

New Readers are always welcome.  If you feel you would like to serve the parish community in the proclamation of the Word of God please contact:
