Are you called to be a lay minister?

"All of the baptized are called to work toward the transformation of the world. Most do this by working in the secular realm; some do this by working in the Church and focusing on the building of ecclesial communion, which has among its purposes the transformation of the world."

~ Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord, USCCB

Lay minister convocation

All lay ministers are highly encouraged to attend this gathering. Mass will be offered, followed by talks, food, and fellowship. There is no cost, but space is limited.
