The Mass, or Eucharistic Liturgy, is the center of worship in the Catholic faith. During the Liturgy of the Word at Mass, lay persons act as Lectors who read the First and/or Second Readings of the day. They are responsible for practicing to enhance their understanding of each scriptural reading and the quality of their presentation. The Lector may also be asked to read the intentions during the Prayer of the Faithful.


If you would like to be part of the Lector ministry at Sunday Mass, reading about once per month, please email parishsecretary@hcrosschurch.org or call 301-942-1020 and indicate your preferred Mass time.
