Lay Ministry Commissioning Mass with Bishop Gruss

Lay Ministry

WHEN:  Sunday, October 13 at 2:30 p.m. 
WHERE:  Cathedral of Mary of the Assumption, 615 Hoyt Ave., Saginaw, MI 48607

Bishop Gruss will preside at this annual liturgy when lay ministry candidates are commissioned and missioned—and lay ministers renew their commitments or obtain permanent status. All are welcome! 

The Lay Ministry Program offers deep spiritual, theological and pastoral formation for lay people so that they may be even more effective in carrying out the lay apostolate and evangelization. Lay ministry formation involves four years of learning, spiritual formation and pastoral practice before each candidate is commissioned by the bishop for parish-based lay ministry or missioned by him as a “Christian in the World.” Those interested in learning more about the Lay Ministry Program may call 989-797-6609 or
