Mission of the Office for Lay Ministry
You, then, are the body of Christ. Every one of you is a member of it. (1Cor. 12:27)
The Office for Lay Ministry strives to help the People of God in the Diocese of Raleigh recognize that they are unique, gifted members of Christ's body called through baptism to grow in faith and love, to be a community which supports one another on their journeys of faith, and to carry on the mission of Christ to the world.
We provide opportunities for human, spiritual, intellectual, and pastoral formation; for the development of skills necessary for lay ministry; and, for on-going support of the minister. Our goal is to provide the baptized with the leadership skills they need to minister to others.
The words of St. Paul to the Corinthians are reflected in the logo of the Office for Lay Ministry Raleigh: We have each been baptized into Christ and with Christ as our head we have become one body. Together we are called to be formed by the cross in order to be Christ to the world today.
Through the Office for Lay Ministry the Diocese of Raleigh offers resources for lay people who:
