Readers Training

Saturday 26th January and Saturday 9th February 2019 – Jubilee Room, St. Joseph’s Church.

At Fr. Colm’s request and because of the importance of the ministry of reader, Dominica Moran will be delivering informal training sessions on each of the above dates. It is essential to attend both sessions which will run between 11am and 1pm in the Jubilee Room at St Joseph’s Church. The sessions will offer practical guidance and support to new readers and to those who wish to develop their existing skills in the delivery of this very important ministry. A short commissioning service will be held in each church during the weekend Masses on 9th and 10th February. If you are an existing reader and do not plan to attend the training sessions please let Marjorie Towers, Parish Secretary know.
