In an effort to continue to upgrade skills for lay readers in our diocese, the Lay Reader Executive and the training co-ordinator has put together a set of fall sessions with tips to assist lay readers with our readings, sermons and prayers. 

These virtual sessions will take place on Monday evenings at 7:00 p.m. via zoom.

The following are the dates, topics and presenters:

October 18 - Tips on Prayers of the People with Archdeacon Nancy MacLeod.

Archdeacon Nancy MacLeod will be providing us with tips for the Prayers of the People. Nancy would like us to ponder these two questions prior to the Zoom meeting. 

  • What are some characteristics of Prayers of the People that most effectively help the community to pray?
  • What are some characteristics of Prayers of the People that hinder community prayer?

If you have a favourite resource you use for the Prayers of the People and would like to share. Please email Nancy the name of the resource and author by October 16. Nancy will send out a list of resources after the Tips session. Nancy’s email address is

November 8 -  Tips on Sermons with Pastor Lynn Dillabough.

We look forward to seeing you there! Blessings! The Lay Reader Executive.
