Are you being called to proclaim the word of God? The Ministry of Lector is rooted in the power of the Word of God. Prayerful proclamation of Scripture makes the presence of God alive in our midst, stirs hearts, challenges, comforts, and moves the community to work for the Kingdom of God Those who serve as lectors agree to make the Word of God an integral part of their lives by entering into regular study and prayer of Scripture. This ministry is a sacred trust, for in the Lector’s proclamation, the Word becomes flesh within the assembly. This noble task demands a deep faith combined with skill in oral communication.
If you are a parishioner of St. Mary Star of the Sea Parish, interested in this ministry, prayerfully consider becoming a Lector at our Parish. There will be training for lectors held in the church on Tuesday, October 25. The training begins with an informational meeting for all current and potential Lectors at 6:30 pm, followed by a training involving the history of the ministry, practical functions of lectors and practice at the Ambo microphone. Please contact Amy at the the Parish Office for more information and to let us know that you plan on being there. May God bless you!
