Lectors play a critical role in the celebration of the Mass by proclaiming the Word of God through the Scripture readings that precede the Gospel reading at each Mass. In addition to being comfortable and clear in public speaking, it’s important for a Lector to prepare in advance and develop spiritually so that they are sharing the Holy Spirit in the Word of God, not just “reading aloud”. We provide training and a lector workbook to aid in lectors’ preparations.
Two lectors are assigned to each weekend Mass, and one to each weekday Mass. Lectors are asked to arrive 15 minutes early, and are typically scheduled for one (occasionally two) weekend Masses per month.
