Strategic Goal
To effectively and efficiently provide quality Biblical apostolate, Catechesis, and Liturgy, in order to have well-formed Catholics who are able to live and share their faith with conviction.
Rationale
Under Pastoral care, the major issues identified were inadequacies in Biblical understanding, initial and on-going formation (Catechesis) and in the celebration of the Liturgy. In order to redress this situation, it is proposed that formation and training in general should be redefined. To achieve this, Animators, Catechists, Religious and Priests should be re-trained. Besides, new ecclesial movements and communities need to be encouraged to enhance the evangelization mission of the Church. The social doctrine of the Church needs to be known. The roles of Chaplains as they accompany the faithful should be streamlined and as part of strengthening the formation, the Diocese should establish Retreat Centres in order to provide for spiritual nourishment and guidance.

Strategic Objectives
i. To promote the reading, sharing and studying of the Bible.
ii. To review and define the content of the initial and on-going formation.
iii. To provide quality formation and training of Catechists and Animators.
iv. To deepen the understanding and proper celebration of the Sacred Liturgy.
v. To promote ecclesial movements and communities in fostering Christian formation.
vi. To promote Prayer Companionship for spiritual guidance of the faithful.
vii. To encourage individual commitment to preaching and witnessing to the Word of God.
viii. To make the Social doctrine of the Church as part of Christian formation.
ix. To identify, train and actively involve Chaplains in service institutions.
x. To establish Retreat Centres with presence of Priests, Religious and Laity to care for the spiritual needs of all.
