Lectors proclaim the Word of God at mass. Lectors become familiar faces at Holy Family as they bring the Word of God to life. The lectors are a smaller group because of their specialized gifts to speak before others.
Parishioners interested in participating in the ministry of Lector must be Confirmed and active members of the Church.
Those who are lectors should have a voice and demeanor that is capable of communicating the sacred scripture to those present.
- Time committment: Attend a training outside of the mass that usually lasts about an hour. Prepare the readings during the week by reading them and reflecting on them. Show up 15 minutes before mass starts.
