Blest are they who hear the word of God and keep it." Luke 11:28
The Lord God has given me a well trained tongue, that I may know how to speak to the weary a Word that will rouse them.
Lectors are the voice of God during the Mass permitting God to speak His message of love. They serve as a bridge between the scriptures and the faithful
Through their Ministry lectors enable the community to draw closer to God through His Word in a way that is life giving
Lectors at St. Martin de Porres serve on a rotation cycle once or twice each month throughout the year
They set aside time to familiarize themselves with their assigned readings and are expected to practice the readings in advance of their delivery. The readings must be uttered with belief, clarity and skill.
The Archdiocese of Toronto/Office of Formation for Discipleship organizes free lectors workshops and lectors are encouraged to attend these workshops.
If you would like to join the Lectors Ministry kindly contact the parish secretary during office hours or Clara Fernandes at firstname.lastname@example.org
