Why Formation of Church Laity is Important

Bishop Joseph A. Galante began his tenure at the Catholic Diocese of Camden, N.J., by hosting 140 “speak up” sessions over 15 months to hear from parishioners about their primary concerns. Because lay people are increasingly called upon to share in the work of ministry and church administration, one frequent request was for more in-depth spiritual and theological formation. Galante responded by creating an extensive program of lay ministry formation, partnering with Catholic institutions of graduate level education. In an article written for Faith & Leadership, an offering of Leadership Education at Duke Divinity School, Christine A. Scheller explores the genesis and development this education program for lay ministers, and raises discussion questions that can help faith communities evaluate lay formation practices, options and resources.
