God’s Holy Word is proclaimed to the gathered assembly by ministers who have been entrusted with this responsibility. They are commissioned to communicate God’s word in the liturgy.
This ministry requires a one-day diocesan-sponsored training session, and periodic meetings are held. Lectors are expected to thoroughly prepare their reading and provide a clear, unhurried delivery.
Contact: See Fr. Passenant after Mass, or call the rectory (718-268-6251) to leave a message for him or Irene Nash.
Readers for the Liturgy of the Word for children and catechists for the catechumenate also serve as Ministers of the Word. Contact our Religious Education office: 718-263-0907 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
