Ministers of the Word Have you ever considered being of service to St. Mary's in one of our minitries? Perhaps in the past you have thought about being a Lector. As we are drawn into the readings and prayerfully travel through Lent, the call to be a Lector may again have become present in your heart. Why not take the next step and become a part of this very special Ministry?
We are compiling a list of those who wish to take part in the training program over the next few weeks. Classes will take place over a three week period in May and last for a maximum of two hours. Commissioning will take place on Pentecost Sunday at the 9:30 AM Mass. For more information, please e-mail Peg Patrick at email@example.com.
