Lectors

Lectors

Lectors are called to proclaim the Word of God at Mass. As heralds of the word of God, prayerful consideration should be given to participation. The most effective Lectors carefully prepare by prayerfully studying the Scripture for which they have been scheduled. The Lector will gain perspective by studying the Scripture that precedes and follows the text selected for the Sunday reading. Lectors are scheduled to read at a particular Mass; however they should be prepared to read at any Mass if called upon. Workbooks and training sessions are provided by the Parish. Our annual meeting and training session is conducted the last Saturday of September each year.
