Readers assist by delivering the Word of God to parishioners during the celebration of Mass, and by leading the congregation in prayer. The clarity and reverence with which readers speak assist in imparting their congregation with a deeper understanding with the Word of God.

Readers normally read one reading, although they may also read the Responsorial Psalm when it isn’t sung. Readers of the Second Reading usually additionally read the Prayers of the Faithful, assisting the Priest in leading the congregation in prayer.

As with other Liturgical assistants, readers normally participate in reading once a month, subject to a roster; however, readers may nominate a time convenient to them.

Contact/joining requirements
Teenagers and adults are considered for readers, and a training program is compulsory for people wishing to join. To express interest in becoming a reader or to enquire on training times, contact the Presbytery during office hours.

All Saints Prayer

God of all holiness

you gave your saints

different gifts on earth

but one reward in heaven.

May their prayers be our

constant encouragement for

each of us to walk worthily

in our vocation.

We ask this through

Christ our Lord.


All holy men and women, pray for us.
