Lay Ecclesial Ministry Training


Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.  And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age. (Mt. 29: 19 – 20)

The Lay Ecclesial Ministry Training Program provides both a basic foundation in Catholic theology and ministry-specific formation. Together, they meet the six inter-related tasks for the development of the Christian faith as outlined in the National Directory for Catechesis:

1) to deepen knowledge of faith;
2) to provide a liturgical education that brings the faithful to full, conscious, and active participation in liturgy;
3) to provide a moral formation that transmits Jesus’ attitudes to the faithful in a way that leads to interior transformation;
4) to teach people to pray in such a way that catechesis is permeated by a climate of prayer;
5) to prepare the Christian to live in community;
6) to prepare Christians to participate actively in the life and mission of the Church.
