“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life. And this life was the light of the human race; The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it”.
are called to proclaim the Word of God at Mass. A lector is a storyteller, called to speak the words of salvation. This ministry requires above all a strong belief in and devotion to the truth proclaimed in the Scripture. Lectors need a loud, clear voice and should be comfortable speaking to large groups. New lectors attend a training/information session, held at various times throughout the year. Lectors are scheduled to serve, in pairs, about once a month.
If you have questions about being a Lector or if you are interested in becoming a Lector, contact the liturgy office.
