EfM is an educational program for lay people based on the premise that the foundation for bringing Christ to the world lies in a Church empowered by an active, theologically articulate laity. Participants enroll one year at a time and can transfer almost anywhere in the USA to continue the program. Contact Jo Ann Barker for more information (463-2024).
