Our parish is in need of more Lectors.  Can you answer this call? Lectors share in the important Ministry of proclaiming the Word of God during the celebration of Mass.  Since the Second Vatican Council, the Ministry of Lector was extended to the laity to promote their greater participation in the Liturgy.  Training will be provided.  Please call the Parish Office at 723-0276 or email us at W534@archny.org.
