God speaks to us in the Liturgy of the Word. The primary role of a Lector is to proclaim the Word of God from the Holy Scriptures. Lectors assist the priest by reading the First Reading, the Second Reading, and the Prayers of the Faithful during Mass. Lectors should be conscious of their role in expressing God’s Word to the rest of the parish community present at the liturgy. Lectors are Parishioners 14 years of age and older, in full communion with the Catholic Church, authorized and trained to proclaim the readings from Sacred Scripture (other than the Gospel) during Masses, and to announce the intentions for the General Intercessions. To be trained to become a Lector please contact the parish office 0715 458 051.
This ministry assists the clergy at the Eucharistic celebrations. Their specific duties are discussed practiced during training. Altar Servers also by their example encourage the assembly to pray and worship with dignity and grace. Interested in becoming an Altar Server? Please contact the parish office 0715 458 051.
Ushers and greeters have the privilege of working directly with parishioners and visitors before, during and after church services.
