Parish Table Talk
• Equip for Ministry for Hispanic Pastoral Formation – update: Level I of The Equip for Ministry for Hispanic Pastoral Formation has been completed. Certificates for the Intellectual course: “Foundations in the Faith and Catholic Doctrine have been given to participants. Fourteen (14) parishes with Hispanic Ministry participated and more than six hundred (600) lay people attended this course. We are working on a “Liturgy” course that will be running from September until the end of the year, for all volunteers and groups of the Hispanic community – all Eucharistic ministers and lectors are required to attend. On July 28th, we will have a final formation course for catechists called: “The Initiation, the Person and the Vocation of the Catechist”. This course will be offered at St. Joseph Cockeysville, with participants from Sacred Heart Glyndon, St. Joseph, and St. John Westminster. This course will be to offer for parishes in the coming months.
