The Lector ministry is a highly visible ministry. Lectors proclaim the Word of God during the Liturgy and lead the General Intercessions. A lector must have a passion for the Word of God; an ability to interpret and understand Scripture; and, sufficient public speaking skills to proclaim the Word to the congregation. Lectors currently serve approximately every 4 weeks, but must be willing to serve as needed.
Training is required and provided.
Diocesan regulations for this ministry are found on the attached link.
