Cong, Duong and Lam admitted to the Ministry of Lector

Bishop Michael McKenna admitted Cong Van Hoang, Duong Van Ha and Lam Song Tran to the Ministry of Lector at  Mass at the Cathedral of St Michael and St John on 28th October.

On the long journey of discernment and formation before ordination, seminarians make three important steps: Ministry of Lector, Ministry of Acolyte and the Admission to Candidacy.  

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 Cong, Duong and Lam congratulations and ask for your continued prayers for them as they mark this important milestone on their journey towards priesthood.
