School for Ministry

Bishop Hughes established the School for Ministry for the Diocese of Newark to better support and help form members of the diocese for their particular ministries. The School for Ministry has been charged by the bishop to develop two primary modes of training: first, to train those preparing for ordination to the Diaconate and, second, to train lay ministers for licensed lay ministries, such as Worship Leader, Preacher, and Pastoral Leader.

In August 2023, Bishop Hughes appointed Dr. Laura E. Moore as the Director of the School for Ministry. Dr. Moore earned a Th.D. in Liturgical Studies from the General Theological Seminary in 2011 and is the author of From Easter to Holy Week: The Paschal Mystery and Liturgical Renewal in the Twentieth Century. She has served as an adjunct instructor at the General Theological Seminary and Drew University and is a member of the North American Academy of Liturgy. She also serves as the Parish Administrator for All Saints Episcopal Parish in Hoboken.
