DIOCESE OF KUMBO

PASTORAL COMMISSIONS

In order to better carry out the work of evangelisation according to the directives and recommendations of the African Synod as contained in the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation Ecclesia in Africa, the Bishops of the Bamenda Ecclesiastical Province issued a Provincial Pastoral Plan which is implemented in the Diocese. According to this Pastoral Plan, the different aspects of the work of evangelisation are taken care of by commissions. These commissions are organized at various levels from the grassroots to the diocesan or provincial level, with the corresponding pastoral councils. There are equally offices at each level to see to it that the commissions work properly.
