That was my question, basically, and I hope others more knowledgeable will comment.  There are, in the N.O., a species called "lectors" which are women taking part in the Mess, as opposed to scripture.  However, they are NOT ordained.  You can call them "Green men on the moon".  So calling them lectors does not make them lectors.  They are not ordained.

The key term  here is "Office".  It sounds like attempted ordinations will be conducted.  From my very limited understanding, this sounds like heresy.  A woman can't be ordained as a lector.  Is this true?

As pointed out, no one is ordained lector in the NO Church. It is an office into which (so far) only men may be instituted.
