As the lay faithful form the larger majority in the church, this office seeks to form, tap and use the expertise of the faithful to build the diocese. The diocese is able to do this by collaborating with the faithful in the governance and teaching aspects of the church.
As instructed by Lumen Gentium #31“… they are called by God that, being led by the Spirit to the Gospel, they may contribute to the sanctification of the world…by fulfilling their own particular duties…”, they are thus guided and formed to embrace their roles both in the church and in the country.
In trying to fulfill the above, the office:
1. Trains facilitators for the various societies.
2. Organizes talks, retreats/recollections for the faithful.
3. Relevant documents of the Church are made available to the faithful to be better equipped for their expected roles in the Church and in society.
4. Laity formation programmes are organized on parish and diocesan levels for the faithful.
