Lectors

o9bv1jdabx8dwv3f8j3mzzhj5zl.jpgLectors proclaim the Word of God at all weekend Masses and on major feast days. Materials for proper preparation and guidance are available so that lectors are comfortable performing this important ministry. We are always looking for more youth and young adult lectors.

Here is an excerpt from the introduction to the 2015 “Workbook for Lectors, Gospel Readers and Proclaimers of the Word”, which illustrates the importance of the lector:

“When Sacred Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to his people, and Christ, present in his word, proclaims the Gospel. Therefore, the readings from the Word of God are to be listened to reverently by everyone, for they are an element of the greatest importance to the Liturgy”{General Instruction of the Roman Missal, 29}

We, who are privileged to read at the liturgy, help to present the Word to the assembly.

Date: Schedules are prepared for 3 month periods. Lectors meet approximately twice per year – in the Fall prior to Advent/Christmas, and, earlier in the year prior to Lent.
Time: No specific set time/date for meetings.
Location: Usually in the Reflection room, TBA
