Liturgical Ministries

Ministers of the Word ~ Lectors

Lectors are men, women, and youth who proclaim the Word of God at Sunday and weekday masses. They are trained for this ministry and serve on a rotating basis.

 

For a lector to be effective as a minister of God's word, it is important that they have a personal relationship with the Sacred Scriptures which is nurtured by reading the bible on a regular basis, and ideally, meditating on the Word in private before they proclaim it in the midst of the worshiping assembly.

 

Requirements for this ministry include a clear, understandable voice, an ability to read well, and an ease with public speaking.
