The Lectors Creed
The Lord God has given me a well-trained tongue that I might know how to speak to the weary a word that will rouse them. “The cycle of readings used in liturgy directs us on a journey of faith. Lectors are our storytellers on this journey, proclaiming the scripture in a way that reminds us God's word is alive here and now.”
(from Loyola University web page)
The ministry of Lectors brings the word of God alive to the assembly. By proclaiming the word “to the weary,” the lector reminds the assembly of God’s love and “rouses” them to do his will. The time commitment for this ministry includes a brief training session as well as preparation time at home before reading. Lector Workbooks are provided to help you with your preparation. Time for this preparation varies according to a person’s experience, but even highly experienced lectors should spend no less than an hour in prayerful preparation for this important ministry. Lectors should also arrive 10 minutes before the celebration of Mass to check the lectionary and to participate in prayer with other ministers of the day’s service.
