Lectors / Readers

Proclaiming the Word of God to His people is the task entrusted to those who join the ministry of lectors at Saint Peter Parish. Lectors are scheduled for the weekend Masses, Holy Days of Obligation and special celebrations. The lector, along with proclaiming the Word, also leads the congregation during the Prayers of the Faithful and helps direct them with announcements. Individual training is provided to prepare those wishing to become lectors. Group refresher courses are also held periodically to reaffirm existing lectors.  A lector's workbook is provided for those who may find the text to be helpful. Confirmed Catholics over the age of 16 are eligible to join this ministry. Interested parishioners should call 412-322-9596 for more information.
