Lectors play a critical role in the celebration of the Mass by proclaiming (not reading or reciting) the Word of God. Since they proclaim not just any word, but the Word of God, it is essential that they develop the spirituality and skills required to communicate God’s message competently.
In becoming a Lector, you are accepting the responsibility to do your best, to practice, to make frequent self-evaluations, to deepen your understanding of God’s Word, to deepen your prayer life and to continually look for ways to improve your ability to proclaim. Through your own sacrifice of time, effort, preparation and prayer, God’s Word continues to become alive again and again. It is a very humbling and rewarding ministry!
For those interested in becoming a lector, training is required and provided.
