Institution of Readers

Friday, January 06, 2012
During the English Dominicans' provincial assembly in Oxford last month, the Provincial instituted two of the Dominican students and members of the Godzdogz team, Brothers Oliver Keenan and Matthew Jarvis, in the ministry of reader (also known as lector).
In this ministry, Brothers Oliver and Matthew are called especially to proclaim the Word of God in church, and also to teach the faith in other contexts.
They are strengthened for this task by the Provincial's blessing, given in the name of the Church.
As a sign of their office, they are presented with the Scriptures which they are to proclaim.
