The call to discipleship, inherent in Baptism, finds its expression through ministerial involvement. God’s people respond to the invitation of the Holy Spirit to identify and offer their gifts for the building up of the Body of Christ.
The word proclaim comes from the Latin pro meaning “before” and clamare meaning “to cry out.” The Lector proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ, making God present to the gathered community.
The ministry of Lector is a charism for the building up of the community, and it does require some native abilities such as confidence, poise and sensitivity to the assembly. Reading skills, the ability to develop proclamation techniques and a clear and steady voice are attributes of a Lector.
If you feel called to this ministry, please contact the Parish Office.
