Silva and Cellars installed as lectors

Pedro Silva and Michael Cellars, seminarians of the Diocese of Charleston, pose with Bishop Steven Lopes of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter after he installed them as lectors at St. Mary’s Seminary in Houston, Texas, Feb. 19. The institution of lector is a step on the way to priesthood. As lectors, the seminarians may read the Scriptures at Mass and at the celebration of sacraments. They may also train other readers and prepare people to receive the sacraments.
