ST. MEINRAD, Ind. — Peter Chineke, a seminarian for the Springfield diocese, was among 18 students at St. Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology to be received into the ministry of lector on March 2 in the seminary’s St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel.
Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of the archdiocese of Louisville presided at the installation.
The ministry of lector is conferred upon those who prepare and proclaim readings from Scripture at Mass and other liturgical celebrations. A lector also may recite psalms between the readings and present the intentions for the general intercessions.
