If you are interested in becoming a lector,
please contact the
office at 369-3816.
Be advised that it is the policy of this parish
that no one (except for those listed below) to enter the sacristy
during Mass. The only exception to this rule are the ushers who are
placing the collection in the vault, and priests, deacons and
servers who have a liturgical reason to go into the sacristy.
Ushers are to lock the vault immediately upon placing the collection
in it. The vault is to be opened by the Sacristan, only when another
person is present. The collection is to be taken to the office by
two people immediately after Mass.
Eucharistic Ministers to the homebound and hospitalized are to pick
up supplies between Masses.
Violations of the policy are to be reported to Fr. Charles or Nancy
Vatican II has this to say about the Lector/Reader
"Readers exercise a genuine liturgical function. They ought to discharge their office therefore, with the sincere devotion and decorum by so exalted a
ministry and rightly expected of them by God's people. Consequently, they must be deeply imbued with the spirit of liturgy, in the measure of proper to each
one. And they must be trained to perform functions in a correct and orderly manner."
The cycle of readings used in liturgy directs us on a journey of faith. Lectors are our storytellers on this journey, proclaiming the scripture in a
way that reminds us God's word is alive here and now. By utilizing provided preparation material, Lectors gain a fuller knowledge
and understanding of scripture. By proclaiming the scriptures in the liturgical assembly, lectors bring to birth the living Word of God. The lectors minister
the presence of God who speaks when the scriptures are proclaimed in church. Lectors help to feed the assembly from the table of the
Word, just as
Extraordinary Ministers of the Eucharist help to feed the assembly from the table of the Eucharist.
If you have heard Gods call to proclaim His Word, we encourage you to explore the opportunity of becoming a Lector here at St. Peter's.
