Liturgical Ministries

Lectors – Adults – High School and Up

According to the ancient tradition and the teaching of the Church, the readings at Mass other than the Gospel are proclaimed by ministers called Lectors. Lectors bring the living Word of God to the liturgical assembly. In and through them, God speaks to the gathered faithful. The ministry of the Word is treated reverently and with great dignity.

The Word of God is proclaimed during the liturgy. Effective proclamation presupposes faith and rouses faith in those who hear the Word proclaimed. It requires the delivery of the message with clarity, conviction and appropriate pace. It also requires serious study of God’s Word, proclamation skills, and practical preparation. The Lector is willing to commit to a bi-monthly schedule, to prepare properly for service and to arrive on time dressed appropriately for the assigned Mass.

Policies and procedures for this ministry are outlined in the Lector Guidelines.

For more information or to join this ministry, please contact our Lector Coordinator, Carol Gianoli at 708-349-4092.

Lectors – Students – Grades 3-8

ATTENTION STUDENTS – We are having Student Lector Training Sessions on March 31 and April 1, 4 – CLICK HERE for more information.

Our ministry of Student Lectors allows children (those who have received their First Eucharist through 8th graders) the opportunity to proclaim the Word of God. They serve at our weekly Young Peoples’ Liturgy of the Word, school and religious education liturgies and on other special occasions. Children interested in this ministry commit to one monthly rehearsal/training (from September through May) at which they receive training and practice their assignments.

For more information, please contact our Youth Lector Coordinator, Pam Domico at 708-448-8887.
