St. Anthony’s Lectors and Eucharistic Ministers

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


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).

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.

Extra-ordinary Ministers of Holy Communion – The Baptismal Ministry of the Table

Really partaking of the body of the Lord in the breaking of the Eucharistic bread, we are taken up into communion with Him and with one another. (Lumen Gentium #7)
Yours is a share in the work of the Spirit, who makes us one bread, one body. Yours is a service at the Lord’s reconciling table. You minister holy food to holy people in the holiest of all Communions.

Yours is the ministry of the One who is broken and poured out for our sakes.
Come to your ministry from your personal prayer, praying that the Lord will heal your brokenness as you break and pour out yourselves to others.
Learn to love the Eucharist you minister. Let it heal the hurt your heart is slow to acknowledge.
Reverence those whom you serve as you would reverence the Sacrament you minister.
