I know what the GIRM says:
- …From the ambo only the readings, the Responsorial Psalm, and the Easter Proclamation (Exsultet) are to be proclaimed; likewise it may be used for giving the Homily and for announcing the intentions of the Universal Prayer. The dignity of the ambo requires that only a minister of the word should stand at it. usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/roman-missal/general-instruction-of-the-roman-missal/girm-chapter-5.cfm
In general, do the rules presented in the GIRM only apply during Mass or at all times?
Can the Ambo be used for other things outside of the Mass?
Our pastor is using it to present Catechism lessons from.
