Regarding Lay Ministry; this is vital for all our Churches - especially in the light of fewer priests to man the barricades.

Inclusive language, Father. As we don't man offices any more, but rather staff them, I suggest we might garrison the barricades.

Re William d. Barton "Inclusive language, Father. As we don't man offices any more, but rather staff them, I suggest we might garrison the barricades."
