What We Do
The role of the Lector is to proclaim the Word of God at each of the Eucharistic celebrations. The people in the ministry should have the noble and unselfish desire to tell the good news of God's love for the world in Jesus Christ. To proclaim that good news from the sacred text is indeed a wonderful honour for all Lectors. To "proclaim" God's word is more than simply reading the scriptures aloud in liturgical assembly. It must be uttered with conviction, clarity, and skill. Proclaiming God's word is a very special kind of reading.
We welcome members of Our Lady Immaculate Parish Community to join the Lectors Ministry. Training will be provided to prepare for Proclamation of the Word, and procedures before, during, and after mass.
Lectors are scheduled to read approximately once every six weeks; a schedule is provided well in advance.
