The main mission of the Lectors ministry is to proclaim the Word of God in liturgical celebrations to make it come alive for us the parishioners. We commit our time to assist our fellow parishioners to deepen our appreciation and grow spiritually in the proclamation of the Sacred Scripture.
Lectors attend training sessions to help them understand their Ministry and better prepare themselves to proclaim the Word of Sacred Scripture.
The Word of God is not merely read during the liturgy. It is proclaimed, yet not with theatrical show. Effective proclamation involves the delivery of the message with clarity, conviction and appropriate pace. It demands the ability to evoke faith in others by demonstrating one’s own faith. Proclamation is a special ministry which presupposes faith. It also rouses faith in those who hear the Word proclaimed. (LM Intro 55)
