Product DescriptionRitual for Laypersons collects in one place the rites at which a layperson can preside when no priest or deacon is available. These include Holy Communion outside of Mass, pastoral care of the sick and pastoral care of the dying which includes prayers for the dead and the mourners. Each rite has a selection of readings, responses and verses from Holy Scripture. The rites reflect the changes in The Roman Missal, 3rd Edition.
The book includes a General Introduction which has guidance as to how the rites can be used and explains any qualifications the layperson may need in order for the layperson to preside. Added convenient features include 2 color type and a ribbon marker. While having all the information needed to perform the rite, the book is small enough to easily be carried whether the layperson is visiting a home, hospital, mortuary or church. Your parish will wish to have a copy or several copies on hand for the use of the laypeople who serve the parish.
