Indeed, the word of God is living and effective, sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating even between soul and spirit, joints and marrow, and able to discern reflections and thoughts of the heart. Hebrews 4:12

The lector proclaims the Word of God to the people. Being a lector calls for one to prayerfully prepare to proclaim God’s Word by studying the background of the readings. Centered in God’s Holy Word, a lector seeks to understand and present the message of each reading included in the Liturgy of the Word in a reverent and humble way. Each lector is especially trained in proper protocol and is scheduled monthly to proclaim the Word of God.
