Ministers of the Word (Lectors)
Ministers of the Word are responsible for proclaiming the first and second readings as well as the responsorial psalm during Mass. These readings are taken directly from Sacred Scripture, typically from the Old Testament and the Epistles.
This Ministry is important because it is in these readings (and the Gospel), “as explained by the homily, [that] God speaks to his people, opening up to them the mystery of redemption and salvation, and offering them spiritual nourishment; and Christ himself is present in the midst of the faithful through his word [as well as in the Eucharist].”
Recruitment and training for Lectors occurs regularly. Our Pastor approves all appointments to this Ministry. Our Lectors commit to reading once a month as well as increased times during Christmas and Holy Week. If you are interested in joining this Ministry please talk to the pastor or contact Kathryn Murray at 905-821-2268.
