Teach, Sanctify, & Serve


Lectors bring the living Word of God of the assembled faith community. When the Scriptures are proclaimed in the midst of the Church, God himself is nurturing His people.

Mission & Purpose:

This ministry is as rewarding for the lector as it is for the parish community. People’s lives are changed for the better when they come to understand God’s Word in a new way due to the spirituality and skill of a Minister of the Word. God’s Word has power, but must have a voice to proclaim it.


One-on-one or small group session to
familiarize lector with liturgical
procedures and to offer coaching and practice on reading skills is provided.

Skills Needed:

A Love of the Word (scripture) and a good reading voice. Experience with public speaking helps, but isn’t necessary.
