Lectors are instituted to proclaim the readings from Sacred Scripture, with the exception of the Gospel. Lectors should have a talent for public speaking and elocution. They should carefully review the Scripture passages and practice reading them aloud before Masses when they are scheduled. Training is provided. Serving in this way implies a personal commitment to the Eucharist which includes weekly attendance at Sunday Mass.
This ministry is open to adults and youth who have celebrated Confirmation, and who are free of any impediments to participating in the sacramental life of the Church.
