Katholische Arbeitsstelle für missionarische Pastoral (KAMP)
(Catholic Office for Missionary Pastoral Care)
In a constantly and ever more rapidly changing society, the Church needs new ways to fulfil its task i.e. to courageously proclaim God’s message in Jesus Christ and to give a credible witness of it. This is its task, its mission, which keeps it in contact with the people of our time and in a dialogue on their questions. The Office monitors and analyses processes of social changes and provides theological suggestions thus making its own contribution to a renewed pastoral care and proclamation of the Church in Germany. It cooperates with the bodies of the German Bishops’ Conference and assists dioceses and other church actors and organisations in their work to enable the people of God to live, celebrate and transmit the Christian faith.
