Lectors at St. Charles

During the Liturgy, the reader is fulfilling a mission to his or her fellow community members. It is a sacred duty that involves a sharing of one’s own faith. The readings from scripture have been chosen such that there is a spiritual message readily apparent in almost every passage. The information below is to help you prepare for your readings.
