Lectors, and Lay Readers


As part of the “ministry of the laity” at St. Mary’s, we have a large number of members who participate in the services by being the readers of the lessons, the psalm, and the prayers of the people. As with so many of our opportunities, this ministry is open to any member after a brief training session.

Again, you will be placed on a rotating roster of readers to ensure that everyone gets a chance to serve. Lectors are actually empowered to conduct many of the services of the Episcopal church, so you may have an opportunity to help in other capacities as well.
