“When the Sacred Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to his people, and Christ, present in his word, proclaims the Gospel. Therefore, the readings from the Word of God are to be listened to reverently by everyone, for they are an element of the greatest importance in the Liturgy. Although in the readings from Sacred Scripture the Word of God is addressed to all people of whatever era and is understandable to them, a fuller understanding and a greater efficaciousness of the word is nevertheless fostered by a living commentary on the word, that is, by the Homily, as part of the liturgical action. (General Instruction of the Roman Missal, no. 29)

Our ministry includes men & women who have been trained to support the liturgy by proclaiming the Word of God through scripture readings at Mass. Assignments are arranged to fit personal schedules.

Qualifications as specified by the Archdiocese of Atlanta for all serving as Lectors are as follows:

  • Received First Communion and Confirmation
  • Married within the Church (if applicable)
  • Completed safe environment training and current in VIRTUS

Please contact Deacon Michael Martell at liturgy@allsaintsdunwoody.org if you are interested in participating in either of these important roles in our Parish.
