We have a growing inventory of resources for lay ecclesial ministers as well as materials which document the changes in the U.S. Catholic Church which have fostered the growth of lay ministry. We also have inspiration ministry story videos and more. Some of these resources are for purchase, for which our members receive discounts. Some resources are member only access. To view these, visit our members site and login and view the "Members Only" tab.

Members receive the lastest news from NALM via our monthly general newsletter on lay ministry and also our unique newsletter geared especially for the needs of lay ministry students.
