Lectors

Lectors

The ministry of the Word is for those who have a great love of Scripture.  As a Lector you will proclaim the Word of God at Mass, introduce the litrugy, and when the a deacon is not present, offer the Prayers of the Faithful.  The Lectors proclaim God's word through understanding of the scriptures, preparation, prayer, and His grace.  As Christ became the word of God through the flesh, we attempt to become living examples of God's word through the flesh for our assembly and community.  If you are interested in being a Lector please contact one of the coordinators below.

A Few Good Lectors Are Not Enough by George Miller
"Great lectors can envision themselves washing the feet (figuratively) of their listeners with God’s word. They try to visualize the humility and love that Jesus showed when he actually did wash the feet of his apostles; then work at proclaiming their readings with the same humility and love; and in so doing, touch the hearts and minds of their listeners more deeply."
