Lectors proclaim the Word of the Lord. This ministry involves effective preparation through practice and prayer to proclaim the Word before the celebration of the Mass or Liturgy. Responsibilities during the celebration may include introducing the celebration, proclaiming the Word through the first and second readings, announcing songs and reading the Prayers of the Faithful with clarity and reverence. Women and men who serve in this ministry are presumed to be of good faith, eager to serve their fellow Christians and willing to participate in ongoing formation for effective service.
