Laity Sunday 2020: Therefore Go! With Hope through Engagement. Laity Sunday celebrates the ministry of all Christians to love God and all people. On Laity Sunday (this year, October 18, 2020), we lift up the vocation of all (lay and clergy) to follow Jesus Christ and lead others to him. As we welcome and offer the good news of Jesus’ love for all, we know that the most engaging opportunities to grow deep and wide in our faith come from relationships with those beyond the comfort and security of our church walls.
