Service of Commissioning of Parish Readers in St. Columba’s, Derryvolgie

Four new Parish Readers Commissioned

Four new Parish Readers, Dorothy Jackson - St Columba’s Derryvolgie, Brian Littler - Christ Church Parish Lisburn, John Williams - St Colman’s Dunmurry and James Newberry - St Patrick’s Jordanstown were licensed at a Service of Commissioning in St. Columba’s Church, Derryvolgie on  Sunday evening 4th June.  The office and work of a Parish Reader is to read morning and evening prayers, and to assist at Holy Communion and other services at the discretion of the Rector.  The Rector of St Columba’s, the Rev Donna Quigley, led the service and delivered a meaningful  sermon; Mrs Jean Parkinson read the Scripture Lesson; Jack Hassard offered prayers of Intercessions and Thanksgiving; and the Rev Canon George Irwin - Warden of Readers, conducted the Act of Commissioning.
