The Proclaimers of the Word ministry includes those parishioners who proclaim the word of God at each Mass through the reading of scripture.
Each Mass has two Proclaimers:
- The First proclaimer reads the First Reading and the Intercessions following the Homily
- The Second proclaimer reads the Mass Introduction and the Second Reading
Proclaimers are scheduled to read approximately once every six to eight weeks. The Ministry lead communicates pertinent information via email to the scheduled proclaimers one to two days in advance of the weekend liturgy.
Proclaimers are expected to prepare for their readings prior the Sunday Mass in which they are scheduled to read.
All Proclaimers are provided with a special workbook they can reference for assistance with the correct pronunciation of words as well as interpretation of the readings. The Sunday readings can also be found here
