The Ministry of Lector is very important! As the Assembly listens to your voice they begin to more fully understand the written Word. This is especially true if you have spent some time meditating in prayer and preparing to deliver.

Confirmed members are invited to participate in this ministry. We ask that you live the Word as well as proclaim it by actively participating in the Mass (even when you are not the Lector!). Please take some time to use the Lector Workbook in your preparations as it gives background on the readings and how to pronounce word. Lectors are scheduled according to the Mass time they prefer. Lectors will be asked to sign up for special liturgical celebrations such as Holy Days and at special prayer services such as Communal Penance in Advent and Lent. Training is provided in the fall and the parish provides lector workbooks for each lector to use.

St. Patrick Church relies on the time, talent and treasure of all its members. Thank you for using your God-given talents to proclaim the Word!

The Lord be in my heart and in my mouth to read the Holy Word of God. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
