A precentor is one who helps facilitate worship. Its Latin meaning is "the one who sings before" (or alternatively, "first singer"). The Precentors have the special duty to bring people together for prayers. This can be done in their native language and at any time of the day. Prayers can be held in the chapels all over the complex. A Precentor has the ability to send group notices.
Current Precentors are:
