The 2015 edition of the Workbook for Lectors, Gospel Readers, and Proclaimers of the Word is now available from CCCB Publications. This resource contains the Scripture readings in large print for easy practice, with words in bold indicating suggestions for emphasis, commentaries that give background and explain the meaning of the reading, as well as margin notes with pronunciation guides and tips for proclamation. The Responsorial Psalm is now also included for meditation and context. The Workbook’s introduction offers an orientation to this ministry of the Word and an overview of proclamation skills. For those parishes that want to adopt the practice on special occasions, links are provided to audio files demonstrating chanted introductions and closings for the readings. The readings in the Workbook are the NRSV texts taken from the CCCB Lectionary for Sundays and Solemnities as approved for use in Canada.
