In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John1:1

Being a lector is more than just being a good reader.  A lector is proclaiming the Good News in a manner so that all may hear and understand God's presence in the Word. 

 

A lector has several duties to perform:

 

  • processing with the Bible
  • reading either the first or second reading
  • reading the general intercessions
  • reading the announcements at final blessing
  • practice and reflect on readings prior to Mass

 

A training workshop is provided for those who wish to proclaim the Word of God.

 

Anyone over the age of 14 is welcome to be a lector.
