Proclaimers of the Word (Lectors) are volunteers from among our parish community. The primary duty of the Lector is to proclaim the word of God.  It requires a dedicated, responsible person to effectively proclaim The Word.  Knowledge and understanding of Scripture is essential for the parish Lector.

Lectors must also have good diction, articulation and reading skills.  Being at ease while reading to a large group of people is also a plus.  A brief orientation and training session is required prior to one being assigned to proclaim the word during Mass.  Our newly trained Proclaimers of the Word are partnered with an experienced lector.  We schedule our Lectors to Proclaim the Word about once every four weeks, so that they may be afforded ample time to prepare.

If you have any questions or if you want to volunteer to become a Lector, please contact Elaine Vollaro at (703)437-7113 or  e.vollaro@stbchurch.com.
