15.--The formation of clerics in seminaries, a work of the Congregation from its beginnings, is to be effectively renewed where needed.

In addition, members should afford spiritual assistance to priests both in the work of their ongoing formation and in promoting their pastoral zeal. They should work to encourage in them the desire of fulfilling the Church's option for the poor. They should also devote themselves to motivating and suitably preparing lay people for the pastoral ministries necessary in a Christian community.

Finally, members should teach clerics and laity to work together and to support one another in the process of forming a Christian community.
