Proclaimers of the Sunday and weekday scriptures have a ministry to break open the Word of God. Lectors need not be scripture scholars, but they must have an understanding of the readings which they proclaim.
Oftentimes, that understanding comes from researching a few chapters of the Bible to see the context, the audience, the time and the place of the original proclamation. Experience with public speaking is a plus when volunteering to become Minister of the Word. Lectors are given workbooks to help in the preparation of the Sunday readings.
Contact the Parish Office (428-5678) if you are interested to join the ministry.
