Equip for Ministry is a process of formation for Lay Ministers (aka "volunteers") throughout the Archdiocese of Baltimore. A separate process of formation for Lay Ecclesial Ministers will be developed based on the Common Standards/Competencies and will be directly focused on Lay Ecclesial Ministry. Lay Ecclesial Ministers who would like to participate in Equip are more than welcome to do so, but it will not replace the future Lay Ecclesial Ministry formation process.
