Important Update on the NALM ANnual Conference
NALM has made the difficult decision to move our 2020 Annual Conference, in partnership with the St. John's Symposium, to June 2021.
* Registration fees will be returned in the next few weeks.
* NALM's focus now is providing support to all of you in lay ministry, which will include more forums and online discussions, presentations, and resources we will make available specifically to those in ministry.
Message regarding the St. John's Symposium in June (from Barbara Sutton):
These are trying weeks with the coronovirus and all the implications it brings. St. John's University has turned to online learning until the end of the semester. With the uncertainty of when the shelter-in-place will be listed, the Symposium will be moved to June 2021...
Over the next few weeks, I will make arrangements with our Business Office to return your registrant fees.

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.
