Ministers of the Word, commonly known as Lectors, proclaim the Word of God to those coming to worship at Sunday or Daily Mass.
Lectors should be practicing Catholics who have the ability to stand before an assembly and read the Word of God in a clear, articulate well modulated voice so that the Word of God is able to be heard and understood by those assembled to worship.
Members of this Ministry should reflect the diversity of the parish community, thus, men and women of various ages, social and ethnic backgrounds, married and single alike are invited to join the Ministry.Those accepting the call to serve as a Lector must recognize that service in this Ministry is for the purpose of meeting the needs of the parish community and is a commitment to prepare properly to proclaim the Word of God at daily and /or week-end Masses, Holy Days of Obligation and other Masses offered during the Liturgical year according to a monthly schedule.
Your willingness to commit to a monthly schedule, to prepare properly for your service and to arrive on time dressed appropriately for your assigned Mass, further reflects that commitment.
