“Faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.” (Romans 10:17, RSV-CE).

Lectors proclaim the living and effective word of God. Christ is present in the word, since it is He who speaks when the Holy Scriptures are read. We proclaim scripture to experience Christ present now in our midst and to make present the past events of salvation history. Liturgy allows us to participate in those events, to experience their power, and their ability to transform us into the image of Christ. Lectors proclaim the Word of God to the assembled community at all liturgies. 

By prayerful preparation for this ministry, they strive to engage the assembled in a living experience of the Word of God and of the presence of Christ in each celebration. 

We are formed and commissioned by the Diocese to become proclaimers of the Word through an ongoing program of formation and practice. Lector attire and careful, extensive preparation maintain the dignity of this ministry. Formation is required as well as fidelity to the teachings of the Church.

Requirements for this ministry have been established by our bishop. Read more
