Share your gifts within The FEST Mass this year!

Join us as a lector, cantor, choir member, usher, or Eucharistic minister!

Lectors

FEST Lector

Are you a strong public speaker? Are you a lector at your own parish? Do you want to proclaim the word of God in front of thousands at The FEST? Then we need you! Our liturgy team is accepting digital auditions for lectors at The FEST Mass. This opportunity is not limited to those who already serve as lectors at their parish, but involvement as a lector is a huge plus!

If interested, please submit a video of yourself proclaiming the sample text below to Mike at Mike@TheFEST.us by Thursday, June 20th.

Sample Reading:

Christ, be the light in the world. Embolden the hearts of all world and civic leaders in facing the challenges of this world. Inspire them to stand for the peace, justice, and dignity of all people, cultures and every human life. We pray…

Christ, be the light in our hearts. May the needs we hold in the silence of our hearts, (pause) for the unemployed and underemployed, for those seeking clarity in their vocation, and for the one person here tonight who needs our prayers the most. We pray…

Cantors

One of the most exciting events of the FEST is the celebration of Mass. Praying, singing, and celebrating the Eucharist together with so many people is humbling beyond words, and an indescribable moment of joy.

Audition to be a cantor, and lead songs at Mass with our very own Bishop Nelson Perez presiding. Contact Matthew Fodor to schedule your audition (MFodor@StAmbrose.us or 330-460-7337).
