Readers serve in an extremely visible ministry when they proclaim the Word at every daily and weekend Mass. Readers help us to hear the Word clearly and distinctly. Initial training is provided by the ministry coordinator and can take up to one and a half hours. Comfort at public speaking and a desire to learn more about Scripture is helpful. The impact of God's message depends significantly on preparation, delivery and the conviction of the Reader.
Interested in volunteering for the Readers Ministry? A readers schedule is developed every month, based on your availability. You may choose to participate in a weekend Mass or a weekday Mass. You can be a full time resident or a snow-bird, if you are here for four to five months. This ministry is a great fit for husband and wife teams. If you are not afraid of speaking in front of large crowds and have a love of Scripture, consider becoming a Reader.
