    World and Australian Apostolic Journey from 1998
    This document provides an overview of the link between the mission priorities of CLC Australia and the World CLC from 1998 to 2015.

    Reviewing our Apostolic Mission
    CLC sees itself as called ‘to become a lay apostolic body that shares responsibility for mission in the Church”. (Nairobi 2003)  As a key for sharing responsibility in mission as an apostolic body, the four-fold process of Discerning, Sending, Supporting and Evaluating (DSSE) was named.  This tool can be used to assist you in EVALUATING some area of activity and could lead to a further DISCERNMENT and then being SENT by you group and being SUPPORTED through your regular sharing within your group.
