The Ministry of the Word (Lector)

Lectors proclaim the Word of God during Mass. This ministry  is for confirmed Catholics in full communion with the Church.

Lectors will receive initial hands-on training which includes both the theology and spirituality of the ministry as well as its practical aspects.

Formation in these ministries is an ongoing process. Annual half-day retreats are held to explore aspects of the spirituality of the ministries, to discuss practical matters and just to continue to build these important communities.

Formal but flexible scheduling enables ministers and parish staff to effectively manage these important ministries. To find out more about potential involvement, email Rob Long at rlong@markstein1919.com or text him at (925) 383-3697. 

The Sunday Eucharist is the most important activity of our worshiping community. The following guidelines help us manifest the importance of the action we are engaged in.
