From the very beginning, Christians have gathered together to hear the word of God, and, from the very beginning, there have been individuals entrusted with the task of reading the word.
The proclamation of the Word of God is truly a service to the Church. Lectors proclaim the living Word of God to the assembly during parish liturgies and lead the community in prayer at the General Intercessions. Current and prospective Lectors receive training in how to publicly proclaim the Word of God. Lectors should be over the age of 16, and have received the Sacrament of Confirmation.
