Notes for Lectors

  • We now will have two (2) Readers at the 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. services who will read the lessons and for that Sunday (First and Second Readings) or the lesson of the day (at the 5:00 p.m. service).
  • The lessons will be read from the lectern. Please sit in a seat as close to the lectern as possible. The microphone must be turned ON before you read and switched back OFF after the last person reads. This is for the sound levels on the live streaming of the service. Clergy will use hands-free mics.
  • Leaflets will be available for the congregation. Please note the First Reading follows the Collect of the Day and be ready to head to the lectern as it is being read.
