On 18th March 2017, Bishop Michael McKenna installed Nam Dinh Le to the Ministry of Lector. Nam is in his third year of formation at the Seminary of the Good Shepherd, Homebush and this is the first of three steps seminarians take on the journey towards priesthood as part of their discernment and formation: Ministry of Lector, Ministry of Acolyte and the Admission to Candidacy.
Lectors take on a special office within the Church and are called to be servants of the living Word of God. In proclaiming the readings, the Lector does more than simply read. A lector’s spirituality must include an understanding of Holy Scripture as God’s Word made present to humankind throughout history, but most fully present in the person of Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh.
We offer Nam congratulations and ask for your continued prayers for Nam as he marks this important milestone on his journey towards priesthood.
