Lay Ministry Formation Program

The Diocesan Office for Lay Ministry is currently accepting applications for the two-year Lay ministry program designed to help you understand more fully your baptismal call to minister to your family, to others in the Church, and to those in your daily life. This program is also a pre-requisite for the permanent diaconate. Classes for year 1 will be held in five sites: Arden, Charlotte, Greensboro, Lenoir and the Smoky Mountain area and will begin in September/October.
