Newman Hall is the Roman Catholic community at the University of California, Berkeley. We are a Eucharistic community, striving to make the promise and challenge of the Gospel and the Catholic tradition a tangible reality in our own lives and the lives of the university community, the residents of our parish, and those drawn to us by the movement of God’s grace. For 101 years we have been served and guided by the Paulist Fathers and their mission of evangelization, reconciliation, and ecumenism & interfaith relations.

Lector Training

PB lector2

Do you feel called to be a lector, who proclaims the scriptures at Mass?   The lector brings the Word of God to life for the gathered assembly – a prayerful gift of ministry to the Newman community that we share.  Our next twice-annual Lector Orientation Workshop will be held on Wednesdays, September 9 and September 16 from 7:00 PM to 9:15 PM in the chapel. Please attend both evenings to become a regular lector.  Whether you have previous lector experience, or are just assessing your calling, you are welcome and will find the workshop useful.  We welcome new lectors at all Masses, but can especially use more lectors Saturday 5:00 PM Mass.
