2020 Collegeville National Symposium on Lay Ecclesial Ministry
Lay Ecclesial Ministry National Symposium

Hosted at Saint John's School of Theology and Seminary
Registration: $300.00, which includes room and meals
I hope this email finds you well! These are trying weeks with the coronavirus and all the implications it brings. Saint John’s University has turned to online learning until the end of the semester. With the uncertainty of when the shelter in place will be lifted, the symposium will be moved to June 2021. I just finished a good and supportive conference call with our partners and it seems the best decision for all. The partners spoke about ways to continue the momentum over the coming year, leading up to June 2021. I hope to have a plan for this after Easter, and will provide it to you once it is established
Over the next weeks, I will make arrangements with our Business Office to return your registrant fees. If you have questions, do not hesitate to ask.
I wish you well.
We are convinced that sustaining healthy ministerial workplaces, built on covenant relationships and a commitment to justice, equips parishes for communio and mission. Healthy workplaces result when pastoral leadership teams actively cultivate trust, community, fairness, financial well-being, shared values, manageable workload, appreciation and vocational commitment. Still inspired by the USCCB pastoral letter, Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord (2005), we invite you on this journey to help foster healthy workplaces for all who minister in the name of Christ.
What is the ministry this symposium seeks to sustain?
