About the Lectors
By proclaiming God’s Word and leading Prayers of the Faithful, Lectors play a vital role in every Eucharistic celebration. Preparation through weekly Breaking of the Word is indispensable to instil Lectors with fervour, conviction and joy to bring scripture to life, thereby touching the hearts and minds of the congregation.
Other community serving efforts include mentoring level 9 confirmands; faith sharing with RCIA catechumens, celebrating feast days and fellowship through retreats. These require initiative and talent in planning, teamwork and pride in execution of all duties for our Lord.
Unquestionably a devoted Executive Committee is crucial, and the CDM Lector Ministry has been blessed with years of active volunteers who love to contribute to community. Effective 1 July 2018, a newly elected Ex-Co will build on the accomplishments of the past; and continue to add talents in other forms (singing, storytelling and cooking!) while keeping in sight the Lector Ministry’s core mission.
Continue to pray for us, to serve this community better!
The following have been elected / appointed into the Lectors Exco from 1 July 2018:
Chairperson: Ms. Dolly Lim
Secretary/ Treasurer: Mr. Benedict Lim
Allocator/ Scheduler: Ms. Ethel Ong; Ms. Germaine Chng
Youth Representative: Ms. Nicole Tew
The Exco will hold office for two years till 30 June 2020. Please continue to support them in prayer.
The lectors are always on the lookout for new members to the Ministry. No one is too young or old to join us as we have lectors from as young as 15 join us to proclaim the word. The experience of our lectors vary from a few months to more than 10, 20 and even 40 years! Experience was gained of course from previous parishes that they have belonged to in the past, whether in Singapore or at other parishes within the Southeast Asia region. The Ministry has twice as many females than males, but strangely the Chairpersons have been predominantly male! We have had 5 Chairpersons since the Ministry was formed – Vincent Yong, Anton Iryawan, David Fong, Benedict Lim, Raymond Ghin and finally a female -Dolly Lim (current).
