LITURGY & WORSHIP MINISTRIES

Lector

Lectors bring the living Word of God to the liturgical assembly. In and through them, God speaks to the gathered faithful. The ministry, therefore, is treated with great dignity and reverence. A person with strong faith, along with a knowledge and command of communication skills, can be one who proclaims the Word of God. Lectors must be trained and approved by the pastor.

Lectores y Anunciadores
