Lay Ministers’ Enrichment

Who We Are and What We Do

LME is a ministry that organizes days of spiritual enrichment for the entire parish community. LME programs offer parishioners and guests time to pray together, learn together, get to know each other, and deepen the faith of the parish community.

Who Participates in LME Programs

All are welcome. Our events are held in Wallace Hall adjacent to the church three times a year and feature a guest presenter/facilitator on topics selected for each program. Participants value engaging and interacting with each other, as well as with the facilitator, in small faith sharing or discussion groups. Our days begin with breakfast and include lunch, which offers more fellowship time. We conclude the day with Mass or a prayer service.


Upcoming LME programs are announced on the St. Ignatius Loyola website and in the Sunday bulletin and Newsletter. Registration is required; details on how and when to register are included in each program announcement.
