When the Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself is speaking to his people, and Christ, present in his own word, is proclaiming the gospel. (USCCB) The Lector is the Lay Minister who proclaims the Word of God at all Sunday, Holy Day, and daily Masses as well as special liturgical events.

All candidates to become a Lector must be a parishioner of St. Paul’s for six (6) months, in good standing in the Catholic Church, and approved by the Pastor.
