Two new Parish Readers will be commissioned on the Day of Pentecost at St. Nicholas, Adare: John Scanlan and Kevin deBurca Murphy. John and Kevin have been in training with the Rev. Liz Beasley, Rector and Warden of Readers, for about a year and a half.
The Commissioning will take part during the Sunday worship service at 12.00pm. Refreshments will be served after the worship.
Parish Readers help a priest in leading worship in the church, and also may lead worship in the absence of the Rector within a parish in their home group of parishes.
We ask for prayers for John and Kevin as they prepare to take up this service to the Church in a formal way.
