3. Socio-Pastoral Engagement
The center will help facilitate education, training and formation programs for BEC leaders and organizers, church-based social development programs and other entities concerned with social responsibility and non-partisan political action. To date, the center has been assisting the BECs in the Diocese of Novaliches and as a distinct contribution to socio-pastoral work it is laying all the necessary groundwork for popularizing the Catholic Social Teaching through various forms of educational and training materials.
The center will forge solidarity links and sustained partnership with social movements and other agents of change in church and society through cooperative research, joint formation programs, exposure-immersion processes and other forms of shared undertaking in the service of the poor and marginalized. This is being realized through the center’s conferences and symposia in which representatives of the social movements are participating on a regular basis.
