"Tell his glory among the nations; among all peoples, his marvelous deeds." (Psalm 96:3)

Lectors have the honor of proclaiming the Word of God through the first and second readings of sacred Scripture during the Mass. They also read the Prayers of the Faithful and the announcements before Mass. The word of God is at the heart of our Mass, and through this word our faith is formed. Thus, lectors have a special role in the liturgical celebration.
