Workshop deepens understanding of Reader Ministry

14 Readers and Readers in Training met from 2 to 4 March at St Columba's House, Woking, England, for a workshop on "Pastoral Care and Liturgical Principles". The teaching and reflection were led by the Revd Elaine Labourel, Assistant Priest at St Mark's Versailles. Worship and fellowship were central to the programme.

The participants came from Greece, Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain and France. The Diocesan Director of Training, the Revd Canon Ulla Monberg, commented on the workshop, "I think it is fair to say that it was a very enjoyable and constructive event. There seems to be a real sense of friendship and a deepening understanding of Reader ministry emerging out of these workshops".

During the days the community celebrated, with a blessing and a toast, the upcoming 30th anniversary of Roy Damary's ministry as a reader. Roy presently serves in Holy Trinity, Geneva.
