Slide 5: Goal of Lector Ministry

Slide 05

See how well each of these experienced lectors succeeds in attaining the goal of the lector ministry

The goal is defined by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops in their General Instruction on the Roman Missal paragraph 101.

It teaches that . . . .

 ”the faithful by listening to the readings from the sacred texts may develop in their hearts a warm and living love for Sacred Scripture.” 

To determine how close you get to this goal, proclaim the same readings and have someone critique it using the “Lector Feedback Form.”   This form contains the proclaiming fundamentals and you are encouraged to print it for your personal use.
