Join in proclaiming the Word of the Lord! Readers proclaim the Old and New Testament readings (other than the Gospel) and serve as commentators for weekend Mass, Holy Days, and special liturgies. You must be willing not only to be assigned to any weekend Mass, but also to volunteer for Holy Days and special liturgies.
Previous experience not required (training and lector preparation book provided), but there is an annual, mandatory meeting in October. Readers are normally scheduled to read/commentate approximately every other week/third week depending on the total number of readers. Schedule accommodations are made for families with members in other ministries, for instance, EMHC, Ushers, and Altar Servers.
