The mission of the Lector ministry is to celebrate the Liturgy through the proclamation of the Word of God at Mass. This includes the first and second readings, prayers of the faithful and the parish announcements. It is important for the lector to understand the meaning at the heart of the text as the the Word of God is meant to be heard and understood and not simply recited. It is also important for the lector to understand the context of the Word in regards to the Gospel reading as well as its placement in regards to the Liturgical calendar.
