The Archdiocese of Chicago has been blessed with many lay women and men who love God and wish to serve Him. The Institute for Lay Formation, a part of the University of St. Mary of the Lake, exists in order to foster the development of these men and women so that they may best respond to God’s call. This call can come in many forms and the Institute has continued to develop its programming in response to these different calls.
