Ministry of the Word - Readers

In the Vatican II document Constitution of the Sacred Liturgy, we read “in sacred

celebrations there is to be more reading from Holy Scripture, and it is to be more varied and suitable.” In response, the new Lectionary published in 1969 gave us a 3-year cycle of

readings for Sundays and Holy Days, and increased the percentage of the New Testament heard in Sunday readings from 16% to 41%.

As lay people we have the great privilege of proclaiming the scriptures during Mass. If you have thought about becoming a reader, then maybe the Year of Faith is the time to take the plunge. Please contact Mike or Ruth Holmes on Lincoln 544927 or for more information.

Morning Prayer during Advent

From Monday 3rd until Monday 24th December, Morning Prayer will be said on weekday mornings, at 9.40am, in the Meeting Room (to the right of the Sanctuary, behind the

Baptismal font), except on Wednesdays, when Morning Prayer is incorporated into the Mass. If you normally come to weekday Mass, perhaps you could arrive early on one or two days per week, to pray the Morning Prayer of the Church in common, as something extra for our Year of Faith.

Session 3 – Saturday 15th December at the Mount

Instead of a discussion group in December, all those who are interested in learning more about the documents of Vatican II are encouraged to go to The Mount (the Convent – at the top of Lindum Hill, LN2 5SL) for a day of Reflection from 11am-4pm. Please bring a packed lunch. Tea/coffee provided. Everyone is welcome.
