The formation and retreat team has as its central role to support all CLC members, from initial enquiry onwards by providing formation and support to help all members grow in their spiritual life as Ignatian lay men and women.  There is a sub group of the team set up to deal specifically with updating literature and creating new materials when needed.  The team works with the National Chaplain and has members at various stages in their CLC journey to help identify the wide range of the members needs and to support the National Team in its work of enabling groups to develop as authentic lay Christian Communities.
