How can I become a lector or a Eucharistic Minister?

The best way to become a lector is to either talk to your pastor or talk to the person in charge of the Lector ministry in your parish. I suggest that you go to the parish website or the parish bulletin to find the correct contact information. Once you get in touch with the Coordinator for your respective ministry, you will probably have to do specialized training (but don’t worry — it won’t be too involved).
