An effective Proclamation of the Word in Liturgy demands more than adequate reading skills on the part of the clergy, Lectors and Lay Readers if congregations are to hear the Word that is truly “alive and active,” if the promises of God voiced in worship are indeed to be “fulfilled in our hearing.”

In the morning, Jay Koyle will make his presentation to groups across the Diocese via webinar.  This portion the day will move beyond
basic communication techniques to highlight and engage various qualities and skills for the effective public proclamation of scripture.

In the afternoon workshop, participants in each of the deanery groupings will work with a facilitator and one another to put into practice the material presented in the morning.In our few hours together, participants will find themselves inspired and better equipped to appreciate and serve in this crucial ministry.
