Homework

Carefully examine the readings for the next two Sundays and determine:

     1.  Where would you pause?

     2.  What words would you "punch?'

     3.  What words would you have to "chop up" into parts in order to pronounce correctly?

     4.  Find "because"; "to", "for", "forever"

 

Required Reading(s): 

  • Look for handbooks, manuals, instruction materials in your parish for lectors and spend some time (unspecified) reading.  Think of how these materials would provide guidance for lectors.
  • If you are a Lector, prepare to read the 2nd Reading of the 29th or 30th Sunday or the one for All Saints.  Three people will be called upon to do those readings during our session.   pdf Click Here (144 KB) for readings.
