Ministry of Lay Reader

 

The ministry of Lay Reader (or Lector) is that of proclaiming the Word of God through the public reading of Holy Scripture in the liturgy.  The Lay Reader is invited to enter a relationship with Christ, the living Word of God, and then impart that Word to the community in a way that inspires the hearers to listen and absorb.

 

Lay Readers at St. Uriel's proclaim the Word with clarity and conviction - because they pray with the Scriptures, reflect on them, and have come to love the Word of God.  Our Lay Readers are called to study the readings not only in preparation for Mass, but also as they integrate them into their daily lives.

 

Qualifications for Lay Reader include a love of the Word of God, a pleasant speaking voice, and reasonable comfort in speaking before a crowd. Each Lay Reader is asked to prayerfully study and practice the assigned reading throughout the weeks before serving.
