“But you are a ‘chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises’ of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light”  (1 Pt. 2:9).

A lector (reader) serves the members of the liturgical assembly by proclaiming the texts of Sacred Scripture during the Liturgy of the Word at Mass and other liturgical celebrations.  Through the worthy exercise of this ministry, the lector enables the faithful to hear the word of God more clearly and receive it with more open hearts.

Some of the faithful are called to serve God’s people in a more particular way through one of the many liturgical ministries that have flourished in the Church since the Second Vatican Council. This diversity of roles, functions and ministries enriches our celebrations and assists us in our prayer. Serving in one of these ministries is both an honor and a responsibility, and those who commit to it deserve nurturing and support.
