Formation for Liturgical Ministries

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion & Ministers of the Word

 

Ongoing formation is essential to the continued exercise of every Lay Ministry. Ministers already commissioned or appointed in their parishes are invited to take part in two days' training and the Day of Prayer and Reflection. The two initial ‘Taster’ sessions are offered for those who feel called or have been invited to exercise one of the Ministries, and/or who want to learn more about Lay Ministry. The Day of Prayer and Reflection is open to everyone.

Speakers:  Sister Anne Walsh OP and Sister Karen Marguerite d’Artois OP are Dominican Sisters of the Congregation of Saint Catherine of Siena of Newcastle, Natal based at Bushey Heath, Hertfordshire.

Training starts in October. This programme will be run in 2 central locations. Registration is required at livingfaith@rcdow.org.uk or leave a voice message at 020 7931 6078.
