The ministry of Lector is a layperson’s special privilege of proclaiming the “Word of God” both Daily and during the Weekend Masses. During the Mass, the Lector normally proclaims the Word by reading from the Lectionary. The first reading is traditionally from the Old Testament or one of Saint Paul’s Epistles; the second reading is usually from the New Testament. Additionally, the Lector will generally read the Prayer of the Faithful or the Intercessions if a Deacon is not present.
