A reader (also called a lector) is one of the minor orders of the Orthodox Church, a sub-clerical order to which a man is tonsured setting him apart as blessed by the bishop to read the epistle readings in the Divine Liturgy. He may also serve as a cantor, catechist, or in other leadership roles in the local parish community.
