READERS IN THE CHURCH

In the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, the term “lector” or “reader” means someone who in a particular liturgy is assigned to read a Biblical text other than the Gospel. Reading the Gospel at Mass is reserved specifically to the deacon or, in his absence, to the priest. But it also has the more specific meaning of a person who has been “instituted” as a lector or reader, and is such even when not assigned to read in a specific liturgy. The reader is appointed for a function proper to him, that of reading the word of God in the liturgical assembly. Accordingly, he is to proclaim the readings from sacred Scripture, except for the gospel in the Mass and other sacred celebrations; he is to recite the psalm between the readings when there is no psalmist; he is to present the intentions for the general intercessions in the absence of a deacon or cantor. Aware of the office he has undertaken, the reader is to make every effort and employ suitable means to acquire that increasingly warm and living love and knowledge of Scripture that will make him a more perfect disciple of the Lord. The Community has Readers of Scriptures to assist in the Liturgy especially, during Holy Mass. Following is the Rota for the Readers.
