A good number of confreres are working in peripheral communities, rural and urban, located in different dioceses and apostolic vicariates, in rather difficult and delicate political and social situations. There were efforts to address directly the livelihood of communities, like cooperatives, vocational training, and agricultural/farm projects. They were directed at self-reliance and also at the youth in order to stem the tendencies to emigrate from their communities.
Other confreres ventured into new approaches of community building (BEC-CO/BCC). These new ways of formation of communities, yet unfamiliar to many Christians, will challenge people to take up their responsibility in the building of a truly incarnated Christian life.
As missionaries, we want to make the distinction between commitment to the mission, which is permanent and missionary involvements, usually a parish-setting, which is temporary.
The parishes that are geographically close to one another will be linking with each other into clusters. Common planning and implementation of fundamental commitments like JPIC, Formation of Lay Leaders, BECs, among others, will be enhanced.
