Using our gifts, we proclaim God’s Word in the support of our parish family prayer, the liturgy of the Holy Mass.

Responsibilities - Responding to our call to stewardship, we proclaim the inspired Words of Holy Scripture. This requires personal prayer, a commitment to continuously improve technique and preparation the week prior to your assigned Mass. Lectors must adhere to the Lector schedule, procedures and dress code.

Helpful Attributes - Proclaiming God’s Word at Mass requires committed individuals to have a strong voice and a desire to make God’s Words be heard clearly and come alive to the congregation.

Time Commitment - Preparation during the week leading up to your assigned Mass - approximately 4 hours.

Training Required - Diocesan and Parish training provided.

Fingerprinting Required - No
