Lecture Ministry

The lectors at St. Joseph Parish have a simple but very important duty – to prayerfully proclaim the Word of the Lord during the celebration of the Mass.

The lectors serve at the celebration of the Eucharist on Saturday vigil, Sundays and Holydays.  The lectors proclaim the 1st and 2nd readings during the Mass, and also proclaim the special readings on Holydays.

The Ministry is open to all members of the Parish.  We currently have lectors with less than a year’s experience to “veterans” with over 30 years of service in the Ministry.  When you join the Ministry, an experienced lector will work with you to make sure you are comfortable serving as a lector.
