- The Lector’s ministry is to proclaim God’s Word to the assembled faith community. They do this transparently in order to allow the Word itself, and not the one proclaiming, to take center stage.
- Lectors prayerfully reflect on and study the readings during the week prior to the liturgy, checking the pronunciation of any unfamiliar words or names, practicing the phrasing, timing, and emphasis in order to make the reading more understandable and meaningful. They meet during the year to go over procedures and share problems and ideas.
Meetings: Twice/year – September and Mid-Spring.
Activities: Lector Trainings (Archdiocesan and Parish Level) and Fellowship.
Our Lectors have established a Manual to assist its members in serving the community. The Lectors work in close coordination with the Liturgy Planning Group and the Worship Committee.
