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.

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: olqmreled@gmail.com.
