The Pilar Animation Centre aims to nurture relationships with all peoples, renew Christian life and re-evangelise Christians who are become indifferent to the faith, towards building the Kingdom of God of Harmony, Hope and Joy
Pilar has a long tradition of evangelising ministry, in keeping with its special call of giving Jesus to those who do not yet know him and to those who are indifferent to him.
There was a catechumenate in Pilar in the early 20 century.
It was followed by the Pilgrim House in the 1960s.The Pilgrim House has now been replaced by the Pilar Animation Centre since 1984.
This expansion of building and aposotolate was part of the Vatican II call for self evangelisation of the Church and a fresh thrust for evangelisation, especially of cultures, as enunciated in Evangelii Nuntiandi . This is later called the New Areopagus in Redemptoris Missio.
