The lector shares in the work of the Lord’s Spirit who opens our hearts to God’s holy word. It is not like announcing the news or reading a public announcement. It is much more. Yours is the task of telling our family story, the story of salvation and proclaiming the true and saving word of God.


1. Strong faith in the Word of God and good speaking skills
