We continue on with our lay ministry formation of leaders serving the ecclesial community in the Spirit of Easter, in which we as Church celebrate what is the center of our identity and mission: the Risen Christ; that saves us, calls us and sends us forth. The immense variety of ministries and pastoral services represent the vitality of the Church, whom we are.
We at the School of Ministry acknowledge that we are in a broad process of formation in which God constantly transforms us into a wide ample variety of ways and forms. The programs (New Wine/Vino Nuevo) and the courses are key factors — but not the only ones — in this process or vocation of service.
Let us pray for God’s graces for all of us continue responding to this call of service through a communal vision in the mission of living and proclaiming His redeeming act of salvation and the person of Jesus resurrected for all.
