Co-Workers in the Vineyard

You are invited to the Convocation for Lay Ecclesial Ministers!

As we prepare for implementation of Partners in the Gospel, the need for lay leaders has never been greater. We need people with ecclesial gifts and professional training serving the Church so that we may continue concretely living the Gospel and making it relevant for people today.

We are pleased to have Archbishop Etienne as one of the presenters at this event designed to provide professional ministers formation and networking opportunities. Our 2023 gathering was so popular that we had to move it to a larger venue and we are grateful to Holy Family parish in Kirkland for accommodating us.

No cost, but you must register to attend. Click here to register.

“As an Archdiocese, we have a long history of developing and supporting lay ministers. It is time to revitalize this crucial ministry.” —Archbishop Etienne
