The Church’s missionary renewal demands the lay people to be on the front lines in the Church and in the world. Therefore, guided by the Word of God, the Magisterium, and the Social Teaching of the Catholic Church, and sensitive to specific and local needs, St Paul institute is committed to its original and genuine mission established by its founder that is to empower and enrich the laypeople to be leader in secular world and pastoral agents within the Church.Before Second Vatican Council, Mgr. Wilhelmus van Bekkum, SVD initiated to open a theological lay institute in Ruteng Diocese. His idea was considered as extra-ordinary in Catholic Church because clericalism was very strong. For him, the existence of this institute was not only to overcome the lack of priests but mainly to promote the lay leadership in the Church. Lay people should have a proper place in the Church and not only as substitute of clergy. And this seems to be the true theological concept of laity.
