Lay Ministries

The ministry of the laity is the work of mission and ministry to which each believer is called. As Christians, we are all called to this ministry or priesthood – not just clergy. Each of us has a responsibility to proclaim the Good News and reach out to others in love.
There are many ways laity can be involved in the ministry of the church. For more information, please click the links below:
