“The Word of the Lord,” these five words tell us a lot about the Lectors Ministry. Whether you are simply interested in a Liturgical Ministry, are thinking about becoming a Lector or have been serving in this Ministry for a long time, think for a moment about the words, “The Word of the Lord.” When they proclaim the word at the ambo and once the reading has been read, they look up at the assembly and say, “The Word of the Lord” something wonderful has happened.

The mystery of God’s interaction with us has been recalled, revived and renewed. That is, we have once again heard God reveal the divine intention to love, redeem and reclaim us. The promise, the covenant that God has made with us has been written on our hearts again. The unfathomable love God has for us, the love that God is for us, has been made flesh again.

The requirement to become a Minister of the Word (or Lector) is to be a Baptized and Confirmed Catholic, fifteen years of age or older.

For more information on how to become a Lector, please contact the coordinators.
