Ha to be admitted as Lector

Bishop Michael McKenna will admit Ha Van Tran to the Ministry of Lector at the 6pm Mass in St Raphael’s Church, Cowra on Saturday 3rd October 2020

As part of the long journey of discernment and formation before ordination, seminarians make three important steps: Admission as Acolyte, Lector and as a Candidate for Ordination.

Lectors take on a special office within the Church and are called to be servants of the living Word of God. In proclaiming the readings, the Lector does more than simply read. A Lector’s spirituality must include an understanding of Holy Scripture as God’s Word made present to humankind throughout history, but most fully present in the person of Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh.

We offer Ha our congratulations and ask for your continued prayers for him as he marks this important milestone.
