Lay Ministries Office. Records

Records of the Lay Ministry Office consist of the work product of staff officer Barry Menuez from 1973 to 1980. The records consist mainly of correspondence with some minutes, reports, conference materials and publications. These records document the changing status of women in the Episcopal Church and the Church's effort to involve part of the laity in the ministry of the Church. The topical files provide little supporting evidence of the range of activities of the office, but the serial newsletter called The 99% is a good resource.

Also included are a variety of material published by St. Margaret’s House, as well as other material collected by staff in scrapbooks, such as leaflets, articles, and photographs, spanning the organization’s history from its beginning in 1908.
