Lector is a Latin term for someone who reads. A Lector reads the Scripture passages that come before the Gospel reading.
Since the Lector proclaims not just any word, but the Word of God, this ministry demands maturity and a respect for Scripture. The teens who have participated in lectoring have done a great job. The parish loves to see its young people taking on such an important leadership role!
What is the Time Commitment?
You have the option of being scheduled to lector for the Thursday 7:00 Mass and/or the weekend Masses. How often you are scheduled is up to you!
