A lector proclaims the Word of God at each of the liturgies.
There are two lectors at each Mass, one who reads the first reading and one who reads the second reading as well as the prayers of the faithful.
Lectors are scheduled for one month at a time and expected to proclaim the Word each week during that month.
Lectors are required to attend a two-hour preparation session prior to the month they are scheduled. On-going formation occurs at this time.
The individual lector arrives at least 20 minutes before Mass for immediate preparation.
The potential lector should have strong public speaking skills prior to volunteering.
Children from 4th grade can begin preparing by reading the Prayers of the Faithful.
