“Anyone can read scripture in public; only a believer can proclaim them.”
Readers read aloud the scriptures and have a very important role during the Mass. The Readers proclaim the first and second readings and may be called upon to make parish announcements. Being a member of this Liturgical Ministry helps you to gain a better understanding of the readings of the week because you prepare and practice at home before reading aloud at Mass.
New Readers are always welcome! To join this ministry, volunteers are required to be practicing Catholics, current on their Safe Environment Training and 18 years or older. Training for this ministry is done by appointment with the Liturgical Coordinator.
