An effective Proclamation of the Word in Liturgy demands more than adequate reading skills on the part of Lectors, clergy, Lay Readers, and preachers if congregations are to hear the Word that is truly “alive and active,” if the promises of God voiced in worship are indeed to be “fulfilled in our hearing.”

This workshop will move beyond basic communication techniques to highlight and engage various qualities and skills for the effective public proclamation of scripture.
We will also consider the implications for Lectors and others when we understand the Liturgy of the Word as memory, narrative, promise, and event.

In our few hours together, participants will find themselves inspired and better equipped to serve in this crucial ministry, and to assist others who may be called to do so.

This day is ideal for… those who read the lessons in worship or are interested in doing so; individuals involved in Bible study, especially when focusing on the lectionary readings; people committed to fostering discipleship formation through worship and catechesis; anyone interested in deepening their appreciation of the Bible and Liturgy.

Jay will begin with his presentation in the morning followed by workshop and group activities in the afternoon for Lenten and Easter readings.
