Hearing and Proclaiming the Word
Just to be clear, the day with Dr Marian Tolley on Saturday 14th February is not just for readers: although we do hope that all our readers will be there. It would also be great if some people came along who might like to become readers, but it is also open to anyone who wants to get to know Jesus better and to grow in their ability to listen and respond to the readings we hear every week.
