lectorLectors serve as readers of the Word of God at each Mass and other liturgical services throughout the year.  The Word of God, as proclaimed in the sacred Scripture, lies at the heart of our Christian life and is integral to all liturgical celebrations.  The minisntry of the Lector is important to the life of the Church, as people are called to faith and love as the words from Scripture are heard.

Men and women of the parish, including high school students who have been Confirmed, are invited to serve as Lectors.  This ministry provides an opportunity to serve others using clear speaking skills with an emphasis on reverence for the Scriptures that are being read.  Serving in this ministry builds confidence in speaking before a group of people.  Anyone interested in being a Lector is invited to call the parish office (946-1675) for more information.
