Lectors assist the celebrant during the Mass by proclaiming the first and second readings at Mass.
This ministry is open to all confirmed Catholics. Youths as well as adults are encouraged to participate—dependability is essential for participation. Preparation and training is required, as lectors must be able to read clearly and project their speaking voice. Lectors are scheduled to read at the Mass they normally attend.
