‘Promotion and Formation of the Laity: Best Practices’ International Meeting (Rome, Italy)
September 26, 2018 - September 28, 2018
This gathering of 40 representatives from 15 countries in Rome is sponsored by the Dicastery on Laity, Family and Life, following the submission of reports by 54 episcopal conferences (out of 150 inquiries) in response to the 2017 circular letter requesting information on best practices regarding the formation of the laity. The event is being chaired by Dr. Santiago Pérez de Camino, head of the Promotion and Formation of the Laity section of the Dicastery.
I am participating and presenting as one of two delegates representing the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in my role as Assistant Director for the Certification of Ecclesial Ministry and Service and will be speaking about best practices in initial and ongoing formation for lay ecclesial ministers in the U.S.
