Our parish currently is blessed with 38 people who serve in this ministry, which includes 32 adults and 6 youth. Two lectors are scheduled for each Mass, one for each Scripture reading. Lectors are called upon to serve approximately once a month.
Training and preparation are necessary for anyone who wishes to be a Minister of the Word. Each prospective new lector must attend one training session to review guidelines and procedures. All Ministers of the Word are also required to attend an annual workshop. This session reinforces procedures and offers a time of prayer and reflection about the importance of the work they do.
Lectors must have training and be scheduled with Nik Santanasto
