Lectors are responsible for proclaiming the Word of God at Mass. This involves reading aloud the first and second scripture selections (usually from the Old Testament and one of the Epistles) for that particular Eucharist. A good lector should have a strong voice, some experience with public speaking, and a strong love for the Word of God.
The mission of the lector is to publicly proclaim the Word of God to our brothers and sisters in Christ, gathered to celebrate Jesus Christ in Word and Eucharist. This ministry requires significant preparation through practice reading, prayer, and meditation on the Sacred Scriptures selected for the Mass that day.
