This ministry is comprised of Commentators and Lectors.  Readers alternate between the two roles according to the prepared schedules.  The Commentator welcomes the congregation and visitors, names the day in the Church calendar and introduces the theme of the celebration.  The Commentator also reads the Psalm (if not sung), and leads the congregation in the prayers of the faithful.  The lector reads the first and second readings in advance in order to bring as much meaning and expression to the text as possible, thus assisting the congregation in their understanding of the Word and supporting the celebrant as he leads the celebration of the mass.
