|Those who proclaim God's word in the liturgy are known as Ministers of the Word or Lectors. |
Answering the call to become a Lector enters one into a deeper relationship with God as He is
revealed in the sacred scriptures. To proclaim the Word, Lectors spend time in prayer and
preparation over the readings they will proclaim.
New volunteers are always welcomed to serve St. Brigid Parish as a Lector. Contact our Parish
Office for more information... Help proclaim your faith & join us in service to Our Lord.

is the food of Christian life and the source of the prayer of the whole
