Readers are responsible for proclaiming the Word of God at all Masses.  After a brief training, you will be placed on the schedule.  Lectors are responsible for welcoming parishioners to Mass, proclaiming the readings, the Prayer of the Faithful, and reading the announcements at the conclusion of Mass.

Interested in becoming a Reader? Speak to Monsignor Royal after any mass. You may also email or call the rectory at (203) 322-3722. Or fill out our Online Volunteer Form



For current Readers

According to the new Liturgical Norms Readers must complete formation with the Diocesan Leadership Institute.

You should have received an email welcoming you to the Institute and inviting you to begin your formation. If you have not please let Kathy King know.

You will do online training from the Diocesan Leadership Institute and attend one of the parish meetings.

Our meeting is Tuesday Jan 22,  at 7:30PM led by Patrick Donovan from the Leadership Institute.

Msgr Royal prefers that you attend our session on the 22nd, but in the event of bad weather or of a scheduling conflict attend one of the alternate sites.

Attending one of the meetings within the diocese is mandatory to be grandfathered in as a Reader.

More details and the list of all meetings within the dioceses can be found at:

You also should be working on the on-line modules in preparation for the meeting. Completion of the modules is not necessary for attending the meeting.
