Southern Africa: Launch of Innovative Pastoral Plan

In the plan, the Bishops have identified evangelization, described as a “personal relationship with Jesus,” as “fundamental to the pastoral plan,” particularly because all other seven focus areas “flow out of this foundational experience.”

Empowering the laity through their formation is a focus area that will see the Bishops work toward having the lay faithful embrace their vocation of seeking “the Kingdom of God by engaging in temporal affairs and by ordering them according to the plan of God.”

The pastoral plan will also seek to foster the life and ministry of the clergy, especially priests and deacons, described as “a special calling to serve the People of God.”
