Lectors are instituted to proclaim the readings from Sacred Scripture, with the exception of the Gospel. They may also announce the intentions for the Universal Prayer and, in the absence of a psalmist, recite the Psalm between the readings. Scheduling is done ideally quarterly and training is done typically in the Fall.

Liturgical Music

The Catholic Center at UGA is committed to fostering excellence in congregational song and prayer. The Fathers of the Second Vatican Council hailed the Church’s rich tradition of Sacred Music as “a treasure of inestimable value, greater even than that of any other art.” The Church states that music is not merely an ornament or nicety but “a necessary or integral part of the solemn liturgy.” Because Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is intended to be a foretaste of the Heavenly Banquet, it is essential that the quality of our sacred music reflect the beauty of the Eternal.


    For those competent in their knowledge of music who are able to assume individual responsibility for leading the congregation in song and proclaiming the Word of God as a psalmist. An audition is required.
