The Diocese of Edmonton has launched an initiative for lay ministry, involving the formation and training of lay people for the work of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ beyond the walls of the church in order to make new disciples for Jesus. Scroll down past the video below to see news items about the commissioning of the first licensed lay evangelists of the diocese and the next training session starting October 2019.
