A lector is a lay minister who reads from the Lectionary at Mass or other liturgical celebrations. When the scriptures are read, it is as if the book disappears. The lector becomes the mouthpiece of God.
God uses the voice of the lector to say something modern, something new, something that applies to the world today. Yes, the words are old, but their proclamation is always new. Good lectors have a rich prayer life based on the Word of God.
Men, women, and teenage youth in high school (grades 9-12) who are fully initiated Catholics (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) are invited to participate as lectors for the community.
