St Columba’s Parish has a thriving team of people who read the scriptures and prayers of intercession at mass. Volunteers may choose to read at 9.30am or 6.30pm masses on a Sunday or 9.30am mass on the weekdays. Those who have volunteered as Sunday readers are given a rota containing the dates, team names and Sundays of the year. They are also provided with a reader’s guide which gives a short reflection on the theme of the mass and prayers of intercession which they can use or adapt as they wish.
We also have weekday readers who take it turn to read at the 9.30am mass or Service of the Word with Holy Communion, Monday to Saturday. Anyone who has an interest in the scriptures and can read clearly is welcome to become a reader. Contact Siobhan Dunn for Sunday reading and Muriel D’Mello for weekday reading.
