On Nov. 1, the Solemnity of All Saints, the PSJS XXIII community welcomed to the house Most Rev. Robert C. Evans, Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Providence. Bishop Evans was with us to institute twelve of our seminarians to the Ministry of Reader.
This ceremony marks an important step towards ordination. Though they may have been lectors in their own parishes or ministries, now they encounter God's Word in a deeper sense. They proclaim the Scriptures and embrace the role of teachers of God's Word.
