Lectors who proclaim the word of God at Catholic liturgies are invited to a series of workshops beginning in the fall at various locations in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
The sessions sponsored by the archdiocesan, Office for Divine Worship, are designed for all instituted lectors to provide ongoing formation for themselves and to assist them in their duty of training new lectors.
Each session will include an overview of the role of the Word of God in the celebration of the Mass, the expectations of the ministers of God’s Word and concrete practical points for more effective proclamation. Guidelines for the role and duties of the lector will be presented and distributed.
All lectors are encouraged to attend one of these two-hour sessions, which run from 7-9 p.m. on Wednesday nights. They include:
Wednesday, Sept. 18
St. Joseph Church, Downingtown
Wednesday, Oct. 2
Our Lady of Ransom Church, Philadelphia

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
