The Mission of the Lector is to enhance the worship experience of the assembly
with the central purpose of celebrating and refreshing the faith of God’s people
by lifting His Word from the pages of Scripture and bringing them to life through
skilled and spiritual proclamation.
Lectors are youth, women, and men who proclaim the Word of the Lord during Mass. This ministry is open to those who have good proclamation skills and can devote themselves to preparation required for proclaiming the scriptures. Training is provided.
Please contact Mary Engen at 229-3378, ext. 300.
Christ is present in His word since it is He himself who speaks
when the Holy Scriptures are read in the Church.
