Roman Catholics have not generally been thought of as people of the word, that is, of the Bible. This has been considered one of the dividing lines between Catholics and other Christians for nearly 500 years. The past 30-some years, however, have witnessed a sea change in biblical familiarity among Catholics.
Lectors often come across biblical words that are difficult to pronounce, or the correct pronunciation may be doubtful. This online guide will be helpful not just to the lector but to anyone who reads scripture.
Presenter: Douglas Leal, former parish director of ministries, Los Angeles, and author of Stop Reading and Start Proclaiming
Reading Scripture aloud is more than merely reading the words well; rather, we are called to proclaim fully all of the life within those words. This workshop introduces practical techniques, borrowed from the time-tested work of professional actors, to turn reading into vibrant proclamation—but not performance. In addition, techniques are offered for making supportive critiques to hone others’ skills.
