A Reader is a religious (reader) who proclaims the Scripture readings used in the Liturgy of the Word from the Lectionary.

It is essential that a Reader is properly trained and be willing to develop skills in proclaiming God's word with competence and eloquence.

I would like to volunteer for this Ministry!


A Reader has to come to Mass prepared with the readings that is to be proclaimed.

A Reader must be committed to the assigned reader-schedule. 



Reader training is provided by the Archdiocese of San Francisco.
