Thanks to all who joined us for the Day for Readers at the Gillis Centre in Edinburgh on Saturday.
The event looked at both the spiritual and practical aspects of the public reading of Scripture at Mass.
Scripture scholar Fr Andrew Garden, of St David's in Dalkeith, led the main session with a reflection on the Gospel of St John.
The day concluded with Mass in St Margaret's Chapel.
Thanks to Fr Daniel Doherty VE, of St Francis Xavier's in Falkirk, and members of the Catechetics Commission for organising this event. Pics: Stephen Dolan.
