What is a Lector?
(This ministry may also be called reader or proclaimer of the word.)
A lector is the person who proclaims the first or second reading at Mass. This person also may lead the Prayers of the Faithful at Mass.
A lector must have the desire to minister in this capacity at the Eucharistic liturgy. This ministry in the Church requires a person who is of excellent character and serious about the practice of their faith.
The lector must believe that Sacred Scripture is the Word of God and have deep respect for God’s presence in that Word.
How does a person become a Lector?
Lectors should be carefully chosen based on their skills in proclamation, their willingness to complete formation in this ministry and their evidence of a deep spirituality.
If you are an adult and feel you may have the gift of proclaiming, please contact our Lector’s Coordinator
