Lectors

“To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love, For it is in giving that we receive. . .”
~ from The Prayer of Saint Francis

Lectors consist of men and women who proclaim the Word of God at daily, weekend, and Holy Day Masses.  This ministry requires preparation through prayer, an understanding of the scriptural text, and an ability to read clearly with appropriate pronunciation and emphasis.  The Word should be proclaimed with humility and reverence so that the Holy Spirit will speak through you.  A commitment to the training and lector schedule requirements of this ministry is necessary.
