LAITY Leadership

AWE ARE CALLED TO SERVE

The ministry of the laity is the work of mission or ministry to which each believer is called. As Christians we are all called to serve in ministry – not just clergy. Each of us has a responsibility to proclaim the Good News and reach out to others in love.
