Lay Ministry

The liaison office for lay professional ministers and parish staff members in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Office for Lay Ministry

Established by Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki in January 2017, the Office for Lay Ministry is the liaison office for lay professional ministers/parish staff members in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.  This office provides opportunities for lay ministers to develop leadership skills, find ministerial positions, receive guidance through the certification process for lay ministers, and receive pastoral care and support. This office also works in collaboration with local institutions of higher learning and with PMMA, Mareda, BAAM, ALMA and other ministeral groups. 

Continuing Formation

Ongoing formation, which strengthens ministerial identity, as well as enhances ministerial skills, is not a luxury to be pursued when time and resources allow, but is rather a permanent necessity for every ecclesial minister, lay or ordained.

Continuing Formation Grant

The Fund is available to assist lay ministers in the  continuing formation and enhancement of skills that will increase the lay minister’s capacity to minister in parishes or Catholic institutions within the Archdiocese of Milwaukee.

Archbishop's Scholars Fund

The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has received a generous grant from the Faith in Our Future Foundation for the purpose of assisting lay ministers in their pursuit of graduate-level education in theology, religious studies, or pastoral liturgy/liturgical music.

Summer Institute

The Summer Institute for Lay Ministers is open to those engaged in full or part-time professional ministry, including parish staff members, principals, teachers, health care chaplains and others in professional ministry positions.

Deacons and Lay Ministers

Our deacons and our lay staff members are essential to the ministry of the Church, most especially in our parish communities. As coworkers in the vineyard of the Lord, we collaborate in leading our parish communities into the future.
