Lectors proclaim the Word of God at Mass. The first and second readings (along with the responsorial psalm if there isn’t a Psalmist) connect with and amplify the Gospel reading, so they are very important. They help the community to hear and respond to God’s Word. As a Lector you receive an understanding of the importance of the Liturgy of the Word at Mass. Also, a deeper love for Scripture and how God is revealed in that proclamation. Training is through the parish as well as through the Archdiocese along with a mandate.
