A lay person trained in reading scripture who is appointed by the clergy person in charge of the congregation to read lessons or lead the prayers of the people. The term is from the Latin, "to read." There is no license required for this lay ministry. A Lector may also be known as a reader.
It is important for us in the Episcopal Church to have lay participation in the Mass. At St. Monica and St. James, we seek those who would like to read the lessons for the Sunday Mass. If you are interested in reading we would love to have you consider becoming a Lector at St. Monica and St. James. Please sign up below if you would like to become a Lector.
