Thank you for your willingness to serve as a Reader at our 5 p.m. Saturday Eucharist at St. Margaret’s! Your important work is an act of hospitality and hope for those who attend and participate.
We normally schedule only one Reader for the 5 p.m. Saturday Eucharist, and ask that you read the First Lesson, Psalm, Second Lesson, and later the Prayers of the People. All the readings are printed in a green binder at the lectern at the high altar, and the priest can help you find that if needed. Please take the green book with you to your pew until it’s time for you to read. You can prepare for your assignment using a schedule of readings here, and there is a small Guide to the Pronunciation of Biblical Names available in the sacristy if you need help. You can stand in place (turning toward the congregation) or move to the front to read; either way is acceptable. When the service is over, please return the green book to the lectern at the high altar.
Please read slowly, loudly, and clearly. Some of our congregation have trouble hearing.
Dress neatly but casually. Your presence and hospitality are the most important part.
Readers should arrive at about 4:45, and let the priest know that you are there. Confirm that you can find the green binder, and let the priest know if you have any questions.
