THE MINISTRY OF THE LECTOR
A Lector is one who reads the scripture and prayers in Church. It is a great responsibility…it is your voice, but it is God’s word.
Not everyone who goes to church reads or studies the Bible, so what they hear read on Sunday may be the only Bible they know. So, it’s important that they hear what’s read.
Helping the congregation hear the Bible is the ministry of the Lector. This requires two things from the Lector:
1. Understanding what you read so it makes sense to you
and the hearer.
2. Good projection and good diction.
If you would like to contribute to this essential ministry, please contact the Rector at the parish office, (914) 967-1749.
