Lectors at St. Charles


Open to parishioners from Junior High School to adult interested in proclaiming the Word of God at Sunday and Holy Day Masses. Participants proclaim the Word at Mass and other liturgies on a rotating basis. During the Liturgy, the reader is fulfilling a mission to his or her fellow community members. It is a sacred duty that involves a sharing of one’s own faith. The readings from scripture have been chosen such that there is a spiritual message readily apparent in almost every passage.

The information below is to help you prepare for your readings.
