Archdiocese of Mobile seminarians Zachary Halloran, Thomas LaPointe and Andrew Williams were among seminarians who received the ministry of lector in February.
While LaPointe and Williams were installed on Feb. 13 at Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology by Archbishop Charles Thompson of Indianapolis, Halloran was installed by Archbishop Thomas J. Rodi on Feb. 16 while assisting at ACYC.
The ministry of lector is conferred upon those who prepare and proclaim readings from Scripture at Mass and other liturgical celebrations.
A lector also may recite psalms between the readings and present the intentions for the general intercessions.
