Lectors proclaim God’s word at each liturgy when they read Scripture from the Old and New Testaments. Additionally, they read the Sunday announcements and lead the congregation during the Prayer of the Faithful.

- Knowledge, appreciation and love of Scripture
- The ability to proclaim the scriptures with poise and confidence
- An understanding of the role of Scripture in daily life, the liturgy, the Sacraments, and the Liturgical Seasons
- A commitment to live the message of the Scriptures that are proclaimed.
