The Lector Ministry proclaims the Word of God, as found in the Sacred Scriptures, to the community of believers during the sacrifice of Mass and at other liturgical celebrations. This lay ministry is held in high esteem by the Church.  Before Vatican II only men who had been ordained to this Minor Order were allowed to read at Mass.  Since Vatican II the Church has allowed lay men and women to proclaim God’s Word.
