It is the function of the Lector to proclaim the Word of God (First and Second Readings) and, in the absence of a deacon, offer the Prayers of the Faithful at Sunday and other selected special occasion Masses.

Any member of the parish, in the third year of high school or older, may become a Lector. Lectors are expected to combine both faith and skill when they proclaim the Word. A parish-based training and orientation class is required for this ministry. Each Lector will be asked to proclaim about twice a month. 

A workbook is provided so that the Readings may be prepared in advance. Lectors are responsible for finding a substitute for those times when they are unable to make an assignment.
