New Lay Ministers Commissioned
New Lay Ministers Commissioned On February 12, at St. Joseph Church, Faith, Bishop Peter Muhich commissioned fourteen new Lay Ministers for the Diocese of Rapid City. The newly commissioned lay ministers attended the three-year Lay Ministry Formation classes held at St. Joseph in Faith and Holy Cross in Timber Lake. The Faith class was facilitated by Deacon Larry and Val Brown. The Timber Lake class was facilitated by Fr. Brian Lane.
The classes consisted of weekly meetings from September through May of each year. Weekly, the students learn more about their faith through their textbooks, praying with scripture, using commentaries, and referencing the “United States Catholic Catechism for Adults.” On a rotation schedule, developed skills by leading the classes.
