Mission & Ministry - Education for Ministry (EfM)

Education for Ministry (EfM)

Have you heard about EfM (Education for Ministry)? This wonderful group process allows participants to explore the Bible in detail and to examine their own theology. It provides a small group in which you can open yourself to renewal and transformation as you learn. There are many EfM groups all around the diocese, and summer is the time when most groups take new members for the academic year. If you are interested, look for the group nearest you (it does not have to be in your local parish). Contact the mentors to register or to learn more.
