The links to the Scripture readings on this webpage are for selecting the readings and for practicing the readings. However, the actual readings during the Wedding are proclaimed from the official lectionary book on the pulpit. No papers or other books may be used at the pulpit, only the official lectionary book.

Lectors must be Catholic, and must be trained as lectors in their home parish. Otherwise, some training may be available before the day of the wedding liturgy. Otherwise, the priest or one of the funeral sacristans may proclaim the first and second Scripture readings at a Wedding in our church.
