ABOUT US

"He is present in His Word, since it is He Himself who speaks when the Holy Scriptures are read in the Church."

(Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, n. 7)"

Christians have gathered together to listen the word of God for as far as we can remember, and from the very beginning, individuals have been entrusted with the task of reading out the word. That service has developed over the course of time to that of the lector and commentator at the Mass we celebrate today.

This is a ministry where we the lay faithful, joyfully commit ourselves to grow spiritually and perform duties and responsibilities, specifically in proclaiming the Word at liturgical celebrations.

We are tasked to ensure that sacred scripture is accorded due meaning and significance for parishioners to clearly and prayerfully hear the Word of God, ultimately leading them to a true Catholic life.

In a nutshell, we share in the mission of proclaiming God’s word to the worshiping community.

Being a lector or commentator is a great way to deepen our appreciation of holy scripture.

If you would like to join us in serving as a lector or commentator, please contact Daniel Lee at 012 – 2127866 or Tianne Pereira at 017-6982098

ACTIVITIES

We, the lectors and commentators of the Cathedral of St John the Evangelist, believe that our responsibility does not end at mass, but it is carried out into our daily lives - we need to glorify God by our lives. With this in mind, we commit ourselves to being a ministry that is not stagnant but one that moves forward together, organizing at least one activity every quarter (every 4 months), that allows us to grow spiritually, as a community or as an individual.  Some of the projects we have carried out are as shared below :

Objective : With the assignment of a new committee, this was a session to get to know each other and Msgr Leonard Lexson, build relationships as well as address the direction / mission of the ministry.

 

Objective : to come together in prayer as a ministry.

LENTEN PROJECT
VISIT TO POSITIVE LIVING COMMUNITY (REHAB) @ BATU ARANG

LENTEN PROJECT
GROUP REFLECTION : SEVEN LAST WORDS OF CHRIST

In efforts for prepare ourselves for Easter, the Lectors and Commentators had a group reflection session, based on the book The Seven Last Words of Christ from the cross. This was a 7 day self-retreat, beginning the week end of Palm Sunday and ending on Good Friday. This session was carried out via the L&C WhatsApp group.
