How did the Lay Ministry Formation Program prepare you for your ministry?
Lay Ministry formation guided me to believe that “My mission is to ‘listen first;’ for the ministry of Christ follows.” In listening first, the Holy Spirit opens my heart to understand and God will speak through my words and actions.
How has Lay Ministry molded you as a person?
Lay Ministry directed me with an outline to take stock of myself so I could realize the importance of my witness of the Presence of God to others. In so doing, the realization is made that “each one of us is sacred,” and brings a gift “package” intended to serve God’s intent for the world. I am here to help someone else to know God, who He is and what He has done.
