Those who are called to the ministry of Lector or Reader apply their talents and time to proclaim God's Word to the worship community. This ministry requires preparation of the Old and New Testament Readings in the Liturgy of the Word. Lectors are also scheduled to serve as Commentators at the beginning of Mass and to lead the community in the Universal Prayer when there is not a Deacon present. After completing an orientation, lectors are scheduled to proclaim the Word approximately once every 4-7 weeks.
All lectors are at least 14 years of age, practicing Catholics in good standing with the Church, registered with the parish, and have received the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.
