A special service to celebrate the ministry of our lay-readers was held in St Patrick’s Cathedral, Tim on the afternoon of 17th June. Meath and Kildare has up to nineteen lay-readers. Our Warden of Lay-readers is Revd Alastair Graham.
This was the first time such as service has been held. The service was led by Dean Paul Bogle and Revd Alastair Graham, with Bishop Pat preaching. In her sermon, the bishop highlighted the fact that ministry flows out of our relationship with God.
Bishop Pat Storey said: “Our lay-readers give so generously of their time and energy to exercise a ministry of leading worship and preaching. Their faithfulness is an inspiration to us, so we were glad to have a service to celebrate their ministry among us.”
After the service refreshments were served in the adjacent hall.
