The mission of the CBCI Office for Laity is to assist the bishops in their task
of animating the laity to realize their vocation and fulfill their mission in the
church and in the world:
By promoting awareness among the laity, consecrated men and women, clergy and bishops
about the dignity and equality of all as the "People of God".
By empowering the laity to deeper Christian commitment by energizing the spirit
of evangelization in the laity.
The main strategy is to render assistance in establishing, animating, inspiring
and motivating effective structures at the regional level, so that the priorities
of the Office can be seriously adopted and effectively implemented in the diocese
The Office has been helping and is willing to help in organizing regional consultations
to motivate the formation of such regional / diocesan teams as well as in conducting
seminars and training programmes for the members of these regional / diocesan teams.
