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.
