This program forms part of the Centre’s mission, which fosters a critical reflection on issues of social concern. The Centre has also established the Catholic Lay Professionals group whose main purpose is to share their expertise with the Church community and the country at large. There is a think tank that meets quarterly on CST, reflecting on what happens on the socio-economic, political and religious/cultural sensitivities.
