Lectors and Lay Readers

As part of the “ministry of the laity” at St. Mary’s, we have a large number of members who participate in the services by reading lessons, the psalter, and the prayers of the people.

As with so many of our opportunities, this ministry is open to any member after a brief training session.  Readers are placed on a rotating roster to ensure that everyone gets a chance to serve. Additionally, lectors are empowered to conduct many of the services of the Episcopal church, offering the opportunity to help in other capacities as well.
