The lector is a proclaimer of the Word of God to those gathered for worship. Our goal for lectors at Holy Name Cathedral is that hearing the Word of God proclaimed by our Lectors will opens wide the doors to Christ for the faithful because of the love of scripture that stems from their ministry.

To become a Lector you need to be a Catholic in good standing having received the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation), be at least age 13 or older, and have a desire to share your faith and an encounter with Christ through the words of scripture.
