The integral evangelization for the BECs consist of Bible orientation and relfection, BEC Orientation, Christian Parenting for Justice, Family Life Educationa and Formation against all forms of Domestic Violence, Violence Against Women and Children. As the Sisters continue to strengthen the BECs and promote it in the parish as a way of becoming Church, the parish's direction is slowly shifting from center-based to marginalized based, from territorial to contextrual, from priest-centered to community-centered, from religious devotional, pietistic activities to advocacy of social ceocenrs and issues, from mandated ministries to lay ministries.
