This month I would like to recognize those who proclaim God’s Word to us at every Mass – our wonderful Lector Ministry. I can honestly say that our Corpus Christi Lector Ministry – day in and day out – is the best, most prepared, of any I have heard.
I appreciate all of you who are willing to take this ministry seriously and prepare well for it. Your proclamation of Scripture makes the presence of God alive in our midst, stirs our hearts, challenges, comforts, and moves our community to work to make a difference.
So, to our lectors – thank you for volunteering to serve Corpus Christi in this unique way.
With special thanks to Mario Aguirre and John Misuraca for coordinating the Lector Ministry.
The current members of this ministry are:
Mary Van Norman
Do you have this special love of Christ and want to bring His presence to others through His Word? Then please consider becoming part of the Lector Ministry.
Participation in this ministry requires a strong, clear speaking voice and the ability to read in front of the congregation. Attendance at a training session is required (sessions to be scheduled as needed) and the schedules are created on a quarterly basis. Patients often wonder what happens after the withdrawal of sleeping pills. Will the normal sleep remain? Is Ambien addictive? Our research suggests that in case of strict adherence to the recommended dosages, the drug can’t cause addiction on a mental or physical level.
My blessing is to be your pastor now and for all that is to come!
Father Tim Ramaekers
