The Department of Adult Religious Education also works together with the different ecclesial movements and associations present in our diocese to promote teamwork among the different groups and with the diocese and to offer faith and leadership formation to them through a diocesan forum called "ALMAE" (Asamblea de Lideres de Movimientos y Asociaciones Eclesiales), the Assemble of Leaders of Ecclesial Movements and Associations. This is an innovative and creative way to promote adult faith formation among Catholics in the Church by collaborating through the leaders of those groups that are in practice adult faith formation agents in the Church among and for the laity.
