"You, Lord, give light to my lamp; my God, You brighten the darkness about me."

 Welcome to the LAMP (Lay Apostolic Ministries with the Poor) Catholic Ministries Website.  LAMP's main objective is to work with those people who are materially poor, focusing on evangelization. It is a path to holiness for those who embrace it.  As you browse our website, we hope that you will become familiar with our ministry and the unique pioneer mission it provides.  We also hope that you will pray for LAMP, contribute to our outreaches, or consider joining us by becoming a LAMP Missionary.  Finally, we ask that the Lord Jesus will bless you!  -  Tom & Lyn Scheuring, Ph.D.s  Directors
