Our Lady of Guadalupe...

"I am the ever-virgin Mary, Mother of the true God who gives life and maintains its existence. He creates all things. He is in all places. He is the God of Heaven and Earth.
I desire a church in this place where your people may experience my compassion.
All those who sincerely ask my help in their work and in their sorrows will know my Mother's Heart in this place. Here I will see their tears; I will console them and they will be at peace. Call me and call my image Santa Maria de Guadalupe."

Lector Ministry 2016/17


After processing up at the start of Mass, both Lectors will go to seats behind the piano. After completing the reading, the 1st Lector will return to that seat . When the 2nd Lector has completed their reading and the music has begun, both Lectors should return to their usual seating.
When you arrive for Mass, please let Frances know if you will be doing the 1st or 2nd reading. Recently there has been some confusion when we have substitutes. Ideally, make contact with the other Lector as well. Be sure to assemble at the back of the church 5 minutes before the start of Mass.

The present Lectionary for Mass must be viewed as one of the most remarkably effective achievements of the church in centuries. Through it the Catholic community, as a whole, now experiences the biblical word in corporate worship in a breadth and depth unknown for hundreds of years.

Over the course of a three-year cycle of readings and psalms, we now have proclaimed and preached most of the New Testament and carefully chosen selections from the Old Testament, including the poetic words of the psalms. This prayerful communal discipline is forming us in ways we can only begin to imagine.

This worship experience has proved so winning that many of our Christian sisters and brothers in North America and other parts of the world now use an ecumenical version of this lectionary (called the Common Lectionary) for their Sunday worship.
