The lector is a proclaimer of the Good News. It is vital to the role that all members of the congregation hear each word clearly and the lector delivers the meaning of the text in an interesting and expressive manner. Lectors are expected to prepare the reading of the text beforehand, utilizing all tools available regarding scriptural background, context, and the meaning of the message for that day.

Two lectors are assigned to each Sunday liturgy, one for each reading. Each lector is invited to choose his/her preferred mass time and generally serve one time per month. Lector training seminars, reviews, updates, etc., will be offered for the group. Training is also provided on an individual basis for beginning ministers. An instructional video is available.
