Mid-Atlantic Congress Article
Two of our 2020 Conference Speakers presented at MAC
"Dudley takes a glass half-full approach to the challenges. What others call a “crisis of vocation” has the potential to be an “explosion of vocation”
– with lay people leading the way, he said." Check out this article
about the 2020 Mid-Atlantic Congress for some hopeful news about the
future of the laity in the Church
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 roots 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. Today, the original vision has expanded to include lay ministers serving parishes, diocesan offices, higher education, healthcare, and prisons throughout the U.S. and world.
