Formation for Lay Ministers
Ministry Matters Part 1, the first step in formation as a Liturgy Minister at Saint Bridget, is a workshop that takes place three times each year.
The workshop follows the format:
- Refreshments and fellowship
- Talk on The Theology of Lay Ministry by a priest or a qualified member of the Liturgy Committee
- A panel discussion of nonverbal communication, formation in Lay Ministry, and the scheduling system with members of the Liturgy Committee
- Initial training in individual lay ministries (Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Ushers) with the ministry heads in 30-minute break-out sessions
Part 2 of Ministry Matters is scheduled separately in small groups or individually with the Ministry Head for the ministry you choose to serve.
