Saffron Walden

Our Lady of Compassion




The Ministry of reading Godís Word aloud for others is both a privilege and a challenge.

Just as others in our community may be Ministers of the Eucharist and assist in distributing Holy Communion, so Readers are entrusted with the sharing of Godís Word.

Through you, people have the opportunity to receive the Good News of the Fatherís purpose and His love; through that proclamation, they will be given light and life.

If you can hear and understand what God is saying through His Word, others will too.

You will be able to read well if you prepare for your Ministry through prayer and reflection.

If you are interested in being a reader, please speak to or email Fr David Clemens.
