This is Session 1 of our three-session training how-to.
It’s designed for the person who is considering serving in or is new to the lector ministry and for the experienced lector who want to be best of the best. It is also a for the occasional reader of scripture at a liturgical gathering such as a Confirmation, wedding, funeral or other liturgy.
