Text Box: Lectors
A religious reader is sometimes referred to as a lector. The lector proclaims the Scripture readings used in the Liturgy of the Word from the official, liturgical book (lectionary). The Roman Catholic Church has a rite by which it formally institutes men who may or may not be studying for the priesthood and diaconate as lectors. 
Canon law permits that "Where the needs of the Church require and ministers are not available, lay persons, even though they are not lectors or acolytes, can supply certain of their functions, that is, exercise the ministry of the word, preside over liturgical prayers, and distribute Holy Communion, in accordance with the provisions of the law." The term "lay persons" does not distinguish between men and women
All are welcome!
