Licensed Lay Ministry School in the Works
The Diocese of Calgary is working to establish a new model for Licensed Lay Ministry, and those efforts are beginning to bear fruit. The Bishop's Committee on Ministry developed a skeleton of what Licensed Lay Ministry could look like in this Diocese in the 21st century, and then established the Calgary School for Mission and Ministry to put flesh on those bones and breathe life into that vision. The School's board has made significant progress in those efforts, and we want to let the people of our Diocese in on this exciting story. We are aware that there is significant interest in this topic among both clergy and laity, so we've produced a newsletter to fill in the blanks and answer the questions about where we are going, how we hope to get there and when.
