The office of lector is a ministry. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal explains, “By tradition, the function of proclaiming the readings is ministerial, not presidential. The readings, therefore, should be proclaimed by a lector…”(59). This means that the role of the lector does not belong to the priest/presider but to others who have been called to serve in this particular way.
The Ministry of the Word continues the mission of preaching the Good News of Jesus Christ by proclaiming it in the liturgical assembly. Lectors are called to a deeper and closer relationship with God through the Word and to become the Word.
If you are interested to be part of this ministry, please contact the Coordinator, Yoly Dabu.
