Lectors have an important role in the celebration of the Mass and other liturgical services where lectors have assigned roles, e.g. Holy Week Services.  As lectors proclaim the Word of God, it is essential that they develop the skills required to communicate clearly, distinctly and competently God's message to the assembled congregation.  Those wishing to serve as lectors must be approved by the Pastor.  The Archdiocese of Washington offers preparatory training each year.  If you want more information about or wish to volunteer for this ministry please contact Elizabeth Litwin at elizlitwin@gmail.com, 240-888-6452 or 301-770-1606
