Lay Ministry Training 
Lay Ministry Training is still used by some parishes for the certification of catechists and general adult education. Catechists who received formation in the Lay Ministry Training Program retain credit for work done in this program, provided the information was accurately provided to the diocesan office.

The Lay Ministry Training Program of the Diocese of Erie is open to anyone who does volunteer ministry in their parish or those seeking adult education.

Enrichment courses: There are eight courses which can be offered in your parish. The diocese will provide a presenter for these courses while the parish serves as the host. The courses are six hours each (typically three, 2-hour sessions).

Available courses:
Spirituality for Ministry (cc)
Moral Decision Makeup (cc)
Old Testament (cc)
New Testament (cc)
Living the Sacraments (cc)
The Many Faces of Jesus (cc)
Eucharist: Our Great Thanksgiving
The Church: Sacrament of Christ

(cc) = Counts as part of diocesan catechist certification.
