Lay Leadership

 Lay Leadership is an opportunity to put faith into action, and there are so many different ways to contribute. For some people, working on a specific task, event or project fits best with their busy timetables, while others may enjoy leading or serving on a committee that meets on a regular basis throughout the year.

If you are interested in volunteering at ESG, please call Lenore Aguanno in the Lay Ministry Office at 416-481-1141 x260 or email
