How did the Lay Ministry Formation Program prepare you for your ministry?
The Lay Ministry formation program is a great blessing for our church and a great responsibility for those who participate in its programs. Through this program, I received tools that enabled me to better serve my community and be better prepared for my ministry. Both my ministry and this formation helped me to reflect on my own journey of faith and inspired me to create “Project Dignitas,” a new social justice program, in Spanish, at the Romero Center. My hope with the new program is that those in the Hispanic community who have had a similar journey to mine, also get inspired to live our faith in our communities by recognizing our own dignity and by uplifting the dignity of the most vulnerable among us.
How has Lay Ministry molded you as a person?
The program also led me to a deeper understanding of my faith, and my personal call to work in ministry. As a result of that, I am able to invite those who I serve to a deeper understanding of their own faith, and their call to serve in their communities.
