Many people believe that one must be ordained in order to be “a minister” but this is not true. The challenge for lay people is acquiring the tools to interpret the richness of their faith and respond to this call in a complex world. Through a four-year program (participants commit to one year at a time), EfM invites participants into a small, mentored group where they will explore, through reading, discussion and theological reflection, how to connect their faith to their daily lives, whether their ministry is at home, at church or in the world. St. Catherine’s EfM group meets once a week for 36 weeks beginning in September. If you would like more information about the program, please contact the church office.
