Lectors


Lectors are men and women selected to share God’s Word by reading the scripture passages prior to the Gospel during Mass.  Lectors are expected to prepare for this Ministry by receiving the necessary training from the parish.  Lectors should practice their assigned readings to insure their delivery has adequate loudness, good phrasing, proper emphasis, and clear meaning.

The readings should not be presented too quickly or too slowly and should be delivered with reverence.  The Lector, for a moment, assumes a leadership role within the Parish Community, and therefore should dress appropriately.  A good Lector allows the community to sense the presence of the living Jesus in the Parish Community without focusing too much attention on himself or herself.
