Lectors proclaim scripture readings and lead the Prayers of the Faithful (in the absence of a Deacon). Lector volunteers must be fully initiated in the Church, must be confident, clear and articulate readers, and must attend annual training sessions. Lectors must perform prayerful preparation and practice in advance of their assigned Mass. Scheduling is on a rotating basis (approximately once per month) according to your preferred Mass time and also depending upon the number of volunteers available. Training sessions are normally offered in the Fall and Spring.
