LAMP (Lay Apostolic Ministries with the Poor) of New York City is a "Catholic lay missionary association, comprised of people who serve among the materially poor, with a focus on evangelization. It was founded by a married couple, Tom & Lyn Scheuring in 1981 and is still going strong 26 years later.
LAMP Missionaries may be married couples, single men and women, as well as religious sisters and priests who can commit a least a year to this work. Lamp missionaries work in material poor parishes who can't afford salaried staff to do home visits, working with youth, adult religious education, Scripture sharing groups, etc. They also work with the homeless and their work is beginning to spread beyond the New York area.
