Six seminarians from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, along with eight men from the dioceses of Allentown, Harrisburg, Raleigh and Trenton, were instituted in the ministry of lector on Saturday, April 27 at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary. As lectors, the seminiarians will proclaim the Word of God at liturgies. They now look forward in coming years to receiving the ministry of acolyte (becoming ordinary ministers of the Eucharist) and ordination as deacons before their hoped-for ordination as priests.
