St. Anthony's Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers

Every liturgical celebration follows a ritual which is marked by rubrics (highlighted in red print) describing in detail what are to be observed, in terms of wording or physical postures.  A certain flow is followed to enable the congregation to be engaged in the celebration. For example, there are designated periods of pauses and silence in the Lectionary.

WE ARE CALLED

Rising from the waters of Baptism, we are…each one of us…are named as witnesses to the whole of Christ’s Paschal Mystery: his suffering, dying and rising.

All of us are called to give thanks and praise to God for all he has done to us. All of us are called to live our thanksgiving by doing the work of justice and mercy in our own respective way. Whatever our individual vocation, it is our Baptism that identifies us as one who shares in the Lord’s ministry.

Lectors – The Minister of God’s Word in the Liturgy

Christians are called to proclaim God’s Word in many ways, through words, actions, and attitudes, in every aspect of their lives, to every person they encounter.

Lectors are also messengers of that Word at the Mass.  There believers are reminded once again of God’s great love for them,  deepening their resolve to live according to God’s Word.

Are you being called to be a Lector?  Complete our volunteer application form and email it to secretary@stanthonysyyc.ca.

Preparation and Silence

Commentary – Week of August 13, 2022

Proclamation of the word of God is truly a service to the Church. Readers bring the living word of God to the assembled faith community. When the Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself is speaking to his people (GIRM #29).
