Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Lectors & Commentators

In deed God's word is living and effective, sharper than a two-edged sword. It penetrates and divides soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the reflections and thoughts of the heart            Hebrew 4:12

 

 Lectors are ordinary people who perform an extraordinary ministry of proclaiming the Word of God. Lectoring is a very visible service offered to the community. This particular service assists the community at prayer by helping them to hear the word of God a little more clearly. Lectors are not readers of the Word, they are proclaimers of the Word. Being a lector requires a desire to delve deeper into scripture, a period of preparation in advance of each reading, and the willingness to arrive at Mass 20 minutes before it begins.

Time Commitment:  This ministry is performed while you are at Mass. This ministry is scheduled; you will be assigned lector responsibilities according to the preferences you provide. Depending on your Mass selection, you may serve from 1 – 3 times per month. This ministry requires 1 – 2 hours preparation in advance of your scheduled assignment.

Ever wonder how to pronounce those difficult names, now you can hear the readings on your iPad or iPhone with the new application Missal. The audio feature provides the Lector with an opportunity to hear the full reading as well as the correct pronunciations.
