Lectors are the lay ministers who proclaim the first and second readings at Mass. They are the medium through which God’s word is communicated to the assembly. It is a response to our baptismal call to serve our faith community. Lectors must be one in faith with the Church and lead a lifestyle that shows a commitment to the Catholic Christian way of life. They must show a willingness to learn more about the liturgy as it relates to the life of the Church.
