“Hear the word of the LORD, O nations; proclaim it in distant coastlands”
What We Do
Readers, once called Lectors, proclaim the words of Sacred Scripture for the First and Second Readings during Mass. This ministry demands more than simply reading text. Readers must have an understanding of Holy Scripture as God’s Living Word made present to mankind throughout history and most fully present in Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh.
Currently, there are 27 men and women serving as Readers at St. Catharine’s.
