TO ALL OUR LECTORS

Thank you for your valuable ministry.

Your help is highly appreciated.

Please be aware, the *Workbook for lectors, gospel readers, and proclaimers of the Word* is available in the sacristy.

This Workbook is one of the best resources a proclaimer can have in preparing to effectively speak the Word of God. Comprehensive though succinct, it offers excellent cultural background as well as insight into the characters in the readings. It provides practical guidance on pronunciation and punctuation; it suggests what to emphasize, and why, and how. Very importantly, it offers spiritual insight into all three readings, how they inter-relate, the message of each, and their relevance to today.

This book includes these helpful features: pronunciation assistance / sense line format for readings mirror the Lectionary and aid the reader in preparation / lectionary numbers for each set of readings / commentaries for each reading, provide users with scriptural background / information and tips for effective proclamation / margin notes point to the logical divisions in the passages / bolded words help the reader know when to stress important sections and concepts.
