The Office of Sacred Worship has developed three courses to form, train, and equip Liturgical Ministers in the Archdiocese of Detroit. Please encourage the liturgical ministers at your parish to enroll and complete the course/s in their area of service. Upon completion, the Director of Worship will advise the Moderator/Pastor to commission individuals to serve as Liturgical Ministers in their Families of Parishes.
