The Office of Lay Formation calls forth the gifts of the laity and empowers men and women in their universal call to holiness, Christian maturity, mission and service. We reach out to all adult Catholics who desire to learn and grow in faith and knowledge.

The goal of the department is to enrich the Christian formation and spiritual life of the laity of the Archdiocese so that they may be more conscious of their role in the Church and in society.

Guided by the vision of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in their document "Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord: A Resource for Guiding the Development of Lay Ecclesial Ministryā€¯, the office develops and implements formation programs that foster and enable lay formation, and that are sensitive to language and culture.

"Through fervent prayer and pastoral work - and relying on the grace of the Holy Spirit - our efforts together will help the whole Catholic people advance in authentic discipleship and fulfil their baptismal call and mission to grow to the full maturity of Christ (cf. Eph 4:13)."
