Lectors proclaim the Word of God clearly and understandably so that all who hear may respond.
Lectors are scheduled for weekend masses approximately once a month, and are asked to proclaim the Word at week day Mass when in attendance. New lectors are required to attend an initial formation session, which includes practicing public proclamation from the ambo with feedback from fellow lectors.
Individuals interested in joining this ministry must be 18 years old or older, possess a strong and clear public speaking voice, and have a commitment to study scripture and practice public proclamation. Typical time commitments for this ministry include three to four hours of at-home preparation during the week leading up to the lector assignment.
Lector practice sessions are offered periodically at Church, and allow lectors the chance to hone your skills amongst a group of peers.
