The Catholic Research Centre (CRC) is an integrated centre for research, reflection, information and formation for the Catholic Church in Malaysia. Founded in 1977 with the objective of helping to build up the Malaysian Catholic Church, it later consolidated its position to focus on bringing about societal awareness to the laity regarding their role in the country’s socio-politico, economic and religious rhetoric.
The Centre seeks to address complex societal issues through the lens of the teaching of the Catholic Church and the Magisterium, in a context which is understandable and accessible to all lay people. In doing so, the Centre facilitates the process of discernment of every Malaysian Catholic who wishes deeper insight and understanding into issues affecting society, and the role of Catholics within that societal fabric.
The Centre promotes and facilitates research work on a variety of topics and monitors the impact of current socio-political-economic situations in the country and in the Church.
