 ABOUT NALM

 

NALM is dedicated to providing vision, voice, leadership, and advocacy for lay ministers and for the development of lay ministry in the Catholic Church.  We do this through fostering and supporting the spiritual and theological formation, training, and ongoing development of career and volunteer lay ministers. 

NALM traces its root to 1976 when a group of lay people, vowed religious, and clergy began meeting annually to share their expertise and to support each other in the common goal of establishing and improving programs of lay ministry formation throughout the United States.  Five years later in 1981, a visionary group including John Reid, Sr. Florita Rodman, C.D.P., Loughlan Sofield, and others formally established NALM.  Today, the original vision has expanded to include lay ministers serving parishes, diocesan offices, higher education, healthcare, and prisons throughout the US and world.
