Lector Training

Do you feel called to be a lector?

A lector proclaims the first or second reading at Mass and brings the Word of God to life for the gathered assembly. Being a lector is one way that you can give back and minister to our Newman community. Our Spring Lector Training Workshop will be held in the Chapel on Wednesday, February 15 and Wednesday, February 22 from 7 pm to approximately 8:30 pm (depending on the number of people who sign up).

Attendance on both evenings is required to be eligible for assignment in the regular rotation. If you have previous lector experience or are just assessing your calling, you will still find the workshop useful. We welcome new lectors at all Masses, but we could especially use more lectors at the Saturday 5 pm and Sunday 10 pm Masses.

If you have any questions, please contact Ferdinand Ramos at (925) 209-7176.
