Lector

Covid Update— Due to guidelines at this time, we are not currently training new lectors. We are scheduling experienced lectors on a week-by-week basis.  If you are an experienced lector and would like to volunteer, contact Lindsay Blaylock.

The lector calls us to be servants of the Living Word of God.  In proclaiming the readings at liturgy, the lector does more than simply read. This is a sacred task of a high order into which only those who are sufficiently qualified are permitted to read. A lector’s spirituality must include an understanding of Holy Scripture as God’s Living Word made present to mankind throughout history, but most fully present in the person of Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh.  Lectors are scheduled to read once a month.

Please contact Lindsay Blaylock for more information at 601-366-2335 Ext. 110 or blaylock@saintrichard.com.
