Description: Readers (Lectors) are liturgical ministers who proclaim the scripture readings at Sunday, Holy Days and daily Masses. Through prayerful proclamation Readers embody the Sacred Word in a very special way. This requires a number of people to be able to fill this schedule and we are always looking for new people. It is a most worthwhile ministry and an honor to share the Word of God. Lectors are especially needed at the 7AM and 6PM Masses.

(5) Candidates who qualify will participate in a training workshop held at St. Catherine to go over procedures.
