Is God calling you to serve his church? Formation for Ministry can help you answer that call by deepening your understanding of your Catholic faith and helping you use your gifts to the fullest in service to your parish. FFM is a two-year program that includes classes, retreats, workshops and fieldwork leading to commissioning by the bishop as a lay ecclesial minister in your chosen area of ministry. This program is a prerequisite for the permanent diaconate. If you would like to learn more, please join us for this information session on September 22 at Holy Cross Church, DeWitt from 1-2 pm! Register by calling Beth Walsh at 315-470-1479.
