The Liturgy of the Word is a vital part of the Holy Mass. Through the proclamation of the Scriptures and the preaching of the Word of God, the Church is continually renewed and made holy.
The lectors proclaim the Word of God. The first and second readings of the Mass are usually by lectors. Training is offered periodically for those interested, and lectors are then scheduled for weekend masses. The ministry schedule is published the last weekend of each month in the bulletin as well as on the website.
Lectors are provided with workbooks that help to better prepare to serve in this ministry. As a lector, you are asked to prepare by practicing the assigned reading prior to the liturgy. You may also be called upon to offer the Prayers of the Faithful as well.
Is God calling you to serve the Church in this ministry? If so, please contact Fr. Vernon.
