About This Site

George Miller's blog has helped me immensely to develop my skills as a lector. His audio CD, The Catholic Lector, is full of great insights and information to help beginning and experienced lectors. I'll recommend this to the lectors in my parish and to anyone who is discerning a call to this ministry...
Suzanne Walsh - New York

You bring great dimension to the ministry of lectors. We have strong proclaimers, but the opportunity provided by you and your resources to go deeper into the spiritual aspects of this ministry are a gift to those who proclaim and those who hear...

I found the Catholic Lector CD very informative and engaging - full of interesting anecdotes and much needed advice for all of us who strive to proclaim the Word of the Lord to the best of our ability... 
Dan Sakraida - Oregon

I have been enjoying your lector website for quite some time now. I recommend it to all of my fellow lectors. Like you, I take this ministry very seriously. Many times I see myself in your weekly comments, and it's wonderful to know that there is another lector out there who "gets" this ministry...

Hi George. You have no idea how enthusiastic I am receiving your blogs. I give you much credit from using your excerpts to my Ministry... 
Mary Ann Niles - Texas

I am very impressed with your website and your passion for inspiring others to proclaim God's Word effectively. In fact, your articles are outstanding...

Audrey Sommers, National Lector Trainer - Michigan

Your love for the Lord and for the Ministry of the Word shine through all your meditations. They are all thought-provoking and inspiring. Your words have helped to bring new life and depth to my own duties as a Minister of the Word...

Lector Coordinator- LA
Back in 2011, I scoured the Internet endlessly for good resources
to  help Catholic lectors do a better job of proclaiming God's word;
 and all I found was a hodge-podge of articles, books, websites,
and videos scattered and buried everywhere... and taking forever
to  find anything.

So the need for a "one-stop" online resource center for churches
in the U.S. and abroad was long overdue... a lectors gateway to the prep aids, inspiration and enrichment to fuel our passion for this amazing ministry in which we're so privileged to serve.  And in response, was launched in 2012.

 Browse around, put this site on your Favorites, and pass the word about it to your fellow lectors and parish leaders.  I hope it helps you be the best messenger of God's word that you can be.  And if you have suggestions or ideas for making it more beneficial for your diocese, your parish or yourself personally, Contact me anytime.
