Lectors proclaim the readings at Mass and other liturgies.
In the Archdiocese of Omaha, Catholic women and men who are high school juniors or older and have received the sacrament of Confirmation are eligible to serve as Lectors. Candidates must be recommended by the Pastor, receive formal archdiocesan instruction, and be mandated by the archbishop. This procedure takes place annually in late summer. The archbishop’s mandation is only valid within the Archdiocese of Omaha. Good reading skills, poise, and a strong voice are needed. Lectors should be people of prayer who enjoy reading and studying the Bible and other Christian writings.
