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
