It has been a while, but we are very proud to share with you our second edition of "From the Ambo" an update of key events and news of importance to our St. Ignatius lector community.
∙ As we mentioned in our last issue, we are currently revamping the delivery of returning lector training. We have met with a few delays, but are close to wrapping it up. We would like you to visit the Lector Ministry site to view our very own YouTube channel where we are collecting videos that help us to be better lectors. Click on here to go directly to the video playlist or go to the lector website at http://ignatiusloyola.org/lectors then go to the Resources area and look under the Training Resources space for the training video playlist.
∙ Please make sure you have all your contact information updated in the MSP. Please verify that your information is correct in your personal profile and in the Directory where all lector’s names and phone numbers are listed. We found several instances where longtime lectors had no phone number in the roster, but their info was in their profile.
∙ Don’t forget to download the MSP app for your mobile device. If you don’t know where to find it, you can always go to http://ignatiusloyola.org/
On August 21st at 1:00 pm in the Main Church we will be having our fourth Spanish Mass celebrating the Year of Mercy. Our Spanish speaking Lectors are doing an outstanding job proclaiming The Word. ¡¡MuchaS Felicitaciones!!
Seeking new Lector Committee members. As our ministry grows, we find the need to add members to our committee. We are currently looking for members to assist with our communication and formation efforts.
