Lay Ministry

The Office of Lay Ministry assists the People of God in the Diocese of Raleigh in recognizing that they are unique, gifted members of Christ's body called through baptism to grow in faith and love and to carry on the mission of Christ to the world.

We provide opportunities for human, spiritual, intellectual, and pastoral formation and  offer resources for lay people who:

  • Want to know more about their baptismal call
  • Are interested in or currently serving as lay ministers
  • Are seeking advanced theological studies or advanced training for ministry
  • Serve as lay ecclesial ministers in the Diocese of Raleigh
