The Lector Ministry makes a truly satisfying and meaningful contribution to eucharistic celebrations at St. Francis.
A lector is expected to attend training sessions when offered, pre-read and prepare the reading(s), learn the proper pronunciation of unfamiliar words, and read at a pace that encourages thoughtful reflection of the Word and its meaning as it relates to our contemporary lives.
St. Benedict says in his Rule: "They should not presume to read who by mere chance take up the book . . . Only those are to discharge these duties who can do so to the edification of the hearers."
We warmly welcome those who are interested in becoming a lector at St. Francis. For more information, please call Joan Vinal, Ministries Coordinator, at 978-452-6611 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
