coverage. It was his passion for the Holy Scriptures and his 
efforts to convey the importance of listening more intently 
and prayerfully to the readings and Gospels at Sunday Mass.

Discernment is not only for new lectors, but veterans as well. The enthusiasm we first feel may die down over time, we may lose our "salt," be drawn to other ministries, feel burned out, or need a re-check of our skills; to name just a few
reasons why discernment should be ongoing. In this article, you'll find a list of 20 thought-provoking questions to help you measure your commitment, enthusiasm and suitability for the ministry of lector todayRead More
