Lector Meeting Feb 16, 5:30 pm
28 January 2023
Memorial of St. Thomas Aquinas, priest and doctor of the Church
Dear Parishioners of Our Lady of the Lake Church,
I wish to thank our current and those candidates for Extra-ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion for our parish. The meeting was very fruitful and we covered the many details that are a part of this important ministry.
Now I move forward to announce a meeting for all Lectors and those wishing to participate in this ministry. The meeting will be held in the church on Thursday evening, February 16th at 5:30 p.m. We will cover the details of the ministerial role of Lector as well as discussing VIRTUS and the obligatory compliance for each participating minister. Mrs. Vicki Irsik, the Coordinator of VIRTUS for our parish will attend this meeting to give information regarding VIRTUS and how to become compliant. Be advised that all ministers and those serving in the parish in any way are to have completed this program. If you have not completed VIRTUS you will not be able to participate in this or any other ministry.
I request you call the Parish Office if you are going to attend the meeting, or, if you would like to participate as a Lector but are unable to attend. I need to know how many will be in attendance in order to have enough materials for the meeting.
I look forward to being with the Lectors and those wishing to participate in this ministry on Thursday evening, February 16th at 5:30 p.m.
The Reverend Michael W. Penn, Pastor
