The Lord has given me a well-trained tongue that I may speak to the weary a word that will rouse themIsaiah 50:4
A lector is a person selected by the pastor or chaplain to read for the celebration of the Holy Mass. A lector typically proclaims the first and second reading, as well as prayer of the faithful during the liturgy.
``Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.``
Our Shrine has a wonderful group of lectors. They serve God, Blessed Mother and our community with great zeal and dedication. Our Lector Group hosts frequent formation meetings and workshops where everyone can pray together and improve their knowledge of the Bible and Liturgy as well as work on their oral proclamation skills. We also organize trips and social events together.
If God is calling you to be a Lector at the Shrine of Our Lady of Czestochowa, do not hesitate! Join us and become a lector!
