The Diocese of Bethlehem offers training for Lay Worship Leaders (formerly called Lay Readers) to help fill these needs.
Training will take place at Trinity Mount Pocono, Saturday, January 23 (9:00 ro 3:30). It will cover scriptural, theological and practical aspects of leading non-sacramental worship in the Episcopal Church.
Led by The Rev. Edward K. Erb, member of the diocesan commissions on Ministry and of Liturgy and Music, and rector of Grace Honesdale.
Cost of the day's training is $20, including lunch and materials. The training prepares one for the licensing by Bishop Paul for leading non-sacramental, public worship. Download pdf of registration form below.
