As we resume a new year 2019-2020 of faith formation and continue serving our Lord, 100 students of our parish heard a call from God and said “YES!” to serving Him in the liturgical ministry of Lector to proclaim God’s Word.
At our first monthly training sessions in September, each lector was commissioned. Each reaffirmed their baptism via a holy water sprinkling rite and commitment to love, light, hope, and faith.
After commissioning, students enjoyed collaborating in an activity based on 1 Corinthians 12:12-26. By working together, students gained understanding that each of us is an important part of the Body of Christ, and we all use our God-given gifts to work together for Christ.
