About Us

The Association of Pastoral Ministers provides support, advocacy and ongoing formation to our members who are professional lay ecclesial ministers committed to pastorally serving the human and spiritual needs in the Church.


The role of our members is one of leadership in calling people forth to ministry and in modeling new ways of ministering.


We are dedicated to nurturing relationships with individuals and organizations within the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis and beyond its boundaries. We are concerned with broader relationships and responsibilities. We recognize the value of dialogue within the Church for human and spiritual growth for all.


A community of discernment, we seek to discover and implement ways that will strengthen and improve the quality of our ministry, modeled after the life and teachings of Jesus.
