One or twice every month I lector at St. Joseph’s Church. St. Joseph’s is located in Waite Park and the acting priest is Fr. Mark Innocenti. I started lectoring to get service hours for Confirmation in 2013 and was asked to continue lectoring the next year as well.
At first, lectoring was just to get service hours but after a few months, and after I had had my Confirmation, I started to enjoy it. My public speaking was being improved and I was much more comfortable speaking in front of my church and was even invited to be the lector for Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday. And, of course my Grandma was very proud. I also received a lot of praise from older participants in the church because I was the only lector under 60 years old and that motivated me to continue lectoring.
