Lectors

The Cathedral parish seeks volunteers to lend their talents as Lectors. This ministry is an excellent means to develop more ties with fellow parishioners, to explore Holy Scripture more deeply, and to take on a vital, though not overwhelming, role for the parish.

The Lector is instituted to proclaim the readings from Sacred Scripture, with the exception of the Gospel. The Lector may also announce the intentions for the Universal Prayer and, in the absence of a psalmist, recite the Psalm between the readings. In the celebration of the Eucharist, the lector has his own proper function (cf. nos. 194-198), which the Lector must carry out.

If you are interested in learning more, please call the parish office 703-525-1300 or Lector Coordinator Dan Murphy at 703-971-3323.
