Laity Sunday

Posted: September 26 2022 at 12:00 AM

This year’s Laity Sunday falls on Oct. 16. The theme is RISE UP! - and Reveal God’s grace (2 Tim 1:8-12).

Under the call to Rise Up, laity in the current quadrennium will continue to echo the invitation of this passage: to Rise Up and revive God’s gift of faith (that first lived in those who loved us); to Rise Up and reveal the grace in Christ that destroys death and brings life; to Rise Up and remain committed to sound teaching with faith and love; to Rise Up and retain this reliable gift of good and beautiful things placed in our trust by the Holy Spirit.
