What are the duties of a Lector?

Review the readings before you come to church. A good resource is bible.usccb.org.

When you arrive at the Church of Saint Mary, check in on the iPad in the Corner.

When the time comes for your reading, walk to the center of the foot of the sanctuary, make a small bow, walk to the ambo, and begin the reading.

If the Gospel is next and the deacon is bringing the Book of Gospels from the altar to the ambo, be sure to put the Lectionary on the storage shelf in the ambo.

What are the duties of an Usher?

Experienced ushers will help novice ushers. This guide highlights the duties that ushers perform.

When you arrive at the Church of Saint Mary, check in on the iPad in the Corner.

Help seat everyone, especially those who may have limited mobility.

Be on the lookout for a small group – perhaps a family – to bring the gifts to the altar during the Offertory. Ask the group before Mass begins.

Take up the collection during the Offertory. Secure the collection.

Help the gift bearers bring the bread, wine, and book of intentions to the altar.

When you arrive at the Church of Saint Mary, check in on the iPad in the Corner.

Prepare the items on the credence table including the chalice, purificators, communion cups, etc. Light the candles at the altar and ambo. Don your alb in the vesting sacristy.

The thurifer, crossbearer, acolytes, and book bearers fulfill their roles at Mass according to the needs of the liturgy.

After Mass, blow out the candles, and reset the sanctuary and credence table.
