Reader Ministry

George Leckey

This book provides an informative, historical record of the office of ‘Reader’ within Ireland rich with personal insights. The author says, ‘I was keen to give information on the human face of this ministry, so, as well as the historical aspect there is information on some of the personalities involved. This includes accounts of the first women Readers which I hope will be of interest.

Some of the rules and regulations placed on the early Readers and some of the unusual incidents are also recorded. I hope along with the facts and figures on the growth of the Reader ministry that the book is a lively account of lay people involved in serving God and the people in this way.’
