An Invitation from the Office of the Lay Pastoral Ministry Institute (LPMI)
Is God Calling You to Serve as a Lay Ecclesial Minister in His Church?
So often, people ask how they might grow in their faith. In response to this searching, in 1998 Bishop Lynch initiated the Lay Pastoral Ministry Institute. The LPMI is a four-year program: an informal year of discernment and three years of formal academic training and spiritual growth.
The initial segment of the program, the Year of Discernment, consists of eight Saturday sessions from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. The classes meet at Christ the King Parish, located at 821 S. Dale Mabry Hwy, Tampa. Classes begin on September 10, 2016 and continue once monthly through April 2017.
The LPMI provides education and formation for laity in the Catholic faith. The program is designed to enhance personal faith and develop intellectual aptitude to enrich personal ministry. For anyone interested in attending the LPMI Year of Discernment, the registration form and program information can be found on the LPMI web site at: http://dosp.org/lpmi/
Or call the LPMI office at (727) 344-1611, ext. 5458. Registrations are due in the LPMI office no later than September 5, 2016. The Ministry Formation Program offered by the Diocese of St. Petersburg Lay Pastoral Ministry Institute is accredited by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Commission on Certification and Accreditation.
