Liturgy Lectors and Readers

Readers proclaim the Word of God on Sunday Mass and special liturgical celebrations.

This ministry aims to actively involve parishioners in ceremonies and celebrations through the prayerful and powerful proclamation of the Word of God. A Reader/Lector must be a person of faith and devotion to God’s Word and be a competent reader for large audiences.

Lectors and Readers have the responsibility of becoming as familiar as possible with the passage they are to read; to read with imagination in order to feel and allow the congregation to feel the emotion of the text and to show the skills of public speaking.
