The sacramental celebration of the Word of God is not merely reading sacred text out loud, it is a proclamation which must enlighten the minds of the listeners and inspire them in the journey towards God. Lectors must be of an appropriate maturity, at least high school age, so that they are competent to fully understand and to fully convey the word of God to the parish faithful. On special occasions, elementary school children may read.
All aspiring lectors must attend a workshop to help them with this task. If you are interested in becoming a lector, please contact Teresa Szafranski at 604.779.8994
