The Lector Ministry consists of adults and young people who proclaim the Word of God on Sundays and other major feasts.

Two Lectors are assigned to each of the Sunday morning Masses and a single Lector is assigned for each of the Saturday and Sunday evening liturgies. 

Group lector training is offered every fall with individual training at other times. The training teaches techniques for effective public reading including how to use a microphone, the importance of eye contact with the congregation and, for first time lectors, how to handle natural nervousness.

Lectors Schedule for July 2017

Dear Lectors,

Grateful for letting me know your availability. July is understandably a challenging month for scheduling due to travels and holidays, and we just made it to fill up all the time slots. Special thanks in advance to Marc Harvey who has been scheduled to read twice in this month :) 

Please find attached the July schedule. If you have any last minute change of plan, please notify in good time and seek replacement. 

Our Parish will celebrate St. Anne's Feast Day on 23 July at 11:15am Mass. Maria Gonzaga and Oliver Wong have been assigned to be the readers, and kindly refer to the attached Feast Day Liturgy booklet to prepare the special bible passages for that Mass.

Thank you to all.

Happy holiday and God bless,

Maria Lee

Lector Schedule for July, 2016

Dear Lectors,

For July, I call your attention to the Parish Feast Day which honors our patron St. Anne, mother of the Virgin. There is a special booklet that will be used for the English services, and the readings will be taken from that booklet and not the red Missal.

I have attached the booklet for those of you who need to prepare and practice for the Parish Feast Day readings. The booklet was prepared for a bilingual service, but Father John confirmed that the English community and the Chinese community will have their separate services, so you can ignore the Chinese portion of the booklet.

Summer holidays may have already come upon some of you; if not, they are soon to come. So, I wish you good rest, exciting travel and rejuvenating activities for the summer months. And thank you for your contribution to the Lector Ministry.

Vivian

REVISED Lectors Schedule for May

Dear Lectors,

1. Please find attached the REVISED schedule for May. If for any reason you cannot make your assignment, please seek a replacement through this group email as soon as you can.

Non-St Anne's people who come to visit have remarked that the level of lectoring at St. Anne's is high. We recognize we have an important role to proclaim God's Word to His people. So please take time to first read your passage at home for understanding, then practice preferably twice out loud, BEFORE you come to church. Read slower than you normally do, and project your voice. Arrive early and announce yourself to Fr John.

Thank you for your continued service to St. Anne's and happy reading!

2. On a different subject, we are trying to identify one or two more people to help co-ordinate this ministry. At the moment, we have 2 people co-ordinating the assignments, keep the directory current, run lector training, and attend Parish Council meetings. If an additional person can be identified, the work will be divided and each person will be responsible for every third month. Please volunteer! It won't take up too much of your time to do this.

Lector Schedule for February 2016

Dear Lectors,

I attach the Lector Schedule for February, in which I have accommodated all the absences over Chinese New Year that have been communicated to me.

NOTE: As in years past, no Lector is scheduled for the Ash Wednesday service both on the Wednesday and on the previous Tuesday evening. We ask any lector attending any of those services to please volunteer yourself as a reader and identify yourself to the priest.

A reminder as usual to:

  • Turn up early to practice by reading out loud
  • Identify yourself to the priest
  • Use the googlegroup email to find a replacement in good time, if you cannot read at your appointed time

Wishing you all a good Lent and safe travels for those who are going away during the holidays.

God bless,

Markus
