Lay Ministry Formation and Leadership Program

Already serving the parish in a ministry position but wishing you had a stronger foundation? You’re in a leadership position in the parish but you know that understanding more about the teachings of the church would be beneficial?

Beginning in August 2017, the diocese will be offering its Lay Ministry Formation and Leadership program for the second time. Meetings are held one Saturday per month in Reno, for ten months starting in August. Some of the meetings will be “Zoomed” to St Joseph’s in Elko to make it easier for those on the eastern side of our diocese to participate.

Interested? Intrigued? Go to the diocesan website for more information and an application form:

Talk to your pastor about it as well. 

Questions? Or you can’t download the forms from the website? Then please contact Dr. Lauri Anne Reinhart at the diocese, 326-9431 or

Applications are due April 15th.
