Lectors proclaim the scripture at Mass and other liturgical celebrations so as to bring alive the Words of God in the hearts of the faithful gathered. The lector has a special love of the Word of the Lord, studies and prays with scripture, has an understanding of God’s Word, an ability to communicate, the willingness to proclaim the scripture in a public place, a love for the liturgy of the Church, and an appreciation of its calendars of feasts and seasons.

Training is required and provided periodically. If you feel called to proclaim the word through the lector ministry, please contact Phyllis Stem for more information.
