There are various pious associations which actively animate the Christian faithful in witnessing and proclaiming the Gospel. They give dynamism and life to the parishes and are actively engaged in the diocesan mission. Each pious association is under the guidance of a diocesan Director. The associations are organized on the parish level, regional level, and the diocesan level. These associations carry out spiritual, social, cultural, and charitable works. Almost all the faithful are part of one or other associations according to their outlook and needs of the time and place. They effectively manage evangelization among various age groups by dividing and organizing the people into different groups and associations according to age and attitude, and need.
