Our Church teaches that Christ is not only present in the Eucharist, but also in the Word proclaimed.  Lectors, then, do not merely “read” at Mass, but instead understand and proclaim the Scriptures for the benefit of all those gathered.  Lectors should have a love of Scripture and a desire to continually grow in knowledge and understanding of it.  Technical proficiency, including the ability to read aloud clearly and intelligibly, strong public presence, and a generally-pleasing speaking voice, is also necessary.  Lectors must be fully-initiated, practicing Roman Catholics at least 16 years of age, who are registered in the parish.  Service assignments are scheduled in three-month periods, and Mass preferences and unavailable dates can be accommodated.  Frequency of service is dependent upon the number of available ministers and may be able to be limited if needed.  An interview and parish-provided training is required for this year-long commitment.
