The Lord GOD has given me a well-trained tongue, That I might know how to answer the weary a word that will waken them. – Isaiah 50:4
Lectors proclaim the Parish’s General Intentions and the Word of God at Sunday Liturgy from the Lectionary. The Lectionary is an ordered presentation of scripture selections from both the Old and New Testaments and extends across a cycle of three years.
Lectors receive training and a handbook of readings.
Depending on the Mass time preference, Lectors are scheduled 1-2 times a month. Lectors do not have to be confirmed but must be practicing Catholics.
