THE LECTORS CORPS
The Lectors Corps is comprised of parishioners who have offered to read the lections on designated Sundays.They arrive in church early on Sunday morning, vest with choir robes and come prepared to read the appropriate lections for the day in English. At the proper moment in the Divine Liturgy they come up to the lectern and read the Word of God. Lectors are encouraged to review their readings in advance and study an Orthodox commentary (like the Orthodox Study Bible) to properly understand them. In the chancel, at the lector’s podium, there is a Permanent Lectionary, which remains there for each Sunday’s reading.The Lectionary contains all of the readings for the entire year. The church office mails the text of the appropriate readings a few weeks prior to the reading date so lectors may be adequately prepared to read.It is an honor and privilege to be a lector and thus spread the Word of the Lord in English to our faithful gathered for the Divine Liturgy every Sunday.
Thank you for your dedicated service to our church.
