Each lector is entrusted with the crucial task of making the Word of God come alive by proclaiming it for the Christian assembly. This group of men and women participates at all Sunday and weekday liturgies and serves an extremely important function in presenting the Liturgy to our community.

St. Bede the Venerable
Patron Saint of Lectors

Careful Historian and Doctor of the Church, lover of God and of truth, you are a natural model for all readers of God’s inspired Word. Move lectors to prepare for public reading by prayerfully pondering the sacred texts and invoking the Holy Spirit. Help them to read in such a way that those who hear may attain learning and edification.


St. Bede’s Feast Day is May 25th
