The Ministry of the Lector is to proclaim the Word of God by reading from both the Old and New Testament at church services throughout the year. “Lector” is the title given to lay persons who read the assigned Scriptures for a particular day. A Lector may also lead the Prayers of the People.
At the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, lectors provide lay service and leadership during all of the services of worship, both on Sundays and on Holy Days and special services. Volunteers select dates and serve approximately once a month depending on availability. - Jackie Wilson, chair
