Lectors proclaim the first and second readings at Sunday Mass, and/or first reading at weekday Masses and also serve as acolytes at the daily masses. Preparatory material helps the lector to prayerfully prepare the readings ahead of time; and to proclaim the Word of God in a reverent manner to the congregation. Lectors also read the Call to Worship at beginning of Mass and, at times, the intercessions, the prayer of the faithful. Lectors also participate in various other events when readers are needed, e.g. Stations of the Cross, etc. Average time commitment is 1 – 2 times per month, but can be adjusted as desired.
