THE Parish of St Philip and St James, Chaguanas hosted its lectors training programme for four consecutive Saturdays: January 12, 19, 26 and February 2.
There were approximately 60 participants with some invitees from the Carapichaima Parish. The sessions were led by senior altar server of the St Finbar’s Parish, Franklyn Maharaj. Chaguanas parish priest Fr Derek Anton warmly welcomed all present at the first session.
The four sessions were well executed as they dealt with various aspects of a lector’s responsibility. Session one introduced participants to the lectionary, significant part of the Mass and the importance of the lector’s ministry.
