Are you being called to serve the Church as a commissioned lay minister? The Formation for Ministry program in our diocese prepares individuals to exercise their Baptismal commitment to serve as commissioned lay ministers. The program offers courses, workshops, retreats and supervised field experience which prepare persons to serve as commissioned lay ministers in a wide variety of ministries. Courses are six weeks long and are offered five times a year throughout the diocese. This year the program will pilot an optional distance learning experience. For more information, contact Fr. Vavonese at email@example.com or at (315)470-1491.
