Lectoring is a vocation (a calling from God’s Holy Spirit), a ministry (a service to the church community) and a job (requiring competence, skill, knowledge and preparation). Lectors are called to a deep relationship with God in order that God’s word, spoken through the Scriptures, may reach the hearts and souls of listeners.
Lectors serve on a rotation for weekend liturgies, currently monthly. They should arrive 20 minutes before Mass, follow the protocol learned in training, and find their own substitute when necessary. Volunteers must be able to articulate clearly.
