Lay ministry plays an important and distinctive role in our parishes.
As you learn more about our program, it is our hope that you will respond to God’s call and join the hundreds throughout our diocese that have completed the two year program and have been commissioned by the Bishop as Commissioned Lay Ministers.
If you believe you are called to serve your parish as a Commissioned Lay Minister, please make an appointment with your pastor to discuss it. If your pastor agrees your gifts are needed for a specific ministry in the parish, then you may begin the application process.
