When a family gets together, often one of the things they do together is to share stories, remembering events of the past, and sharing wisdom or insight into current family experiences. At Mass, we share stories of our faith through the readings.
The Lectors at Mass are lay parishioners who proclaim the readings from the Old and New Testaments. These readings are determined by the liturgical cycle, certain readings are always proclaimed on certain feasts, while most of the readings rotate through a three year cycle so that over the course of three years, the entire bible is covered.
The purpose of having Lectors at Mass is to proclaim the readings in such a way as to communicate meaning in the words of the Lord. The Lector uses their gifts and skills to give voice and life to words given to us by God.
We are most grateful for your continued service to God and to our parish! We feel blest to have lectors at each Mass. Thank you again for your faithfulness to this important ministry! Blessings on the year ahead of us!
