Sažetak The documents of the Second Vatican Council affirm that it is a vocation of a lay person to search for the Kingdom of God taking core, in the first place, of their timely duties and things, ordering them as God commands. The purpose of this exposition is not to clarify the area and the perspective of the engagement of Christians or lay persons' activities in the world, but to clarify the perspective of their engagement within the Church - in the light of present ecclesiological perspectives, as well as in the light of the actual needs and possibilities that Croatian Church, and in a particular way the local Church of Đakovo and Srijem has been brought face to face with.
In the first part of the exposition the author clarifies some elements of the ecclesiology of the Second Vatican Council that treat the given subject. He singles out the fundamental equality of all the members of God's people when it comes to dignity and acting, and inequality regarding the distinction of the ministries within the same vocation; the ecclesiology of togetherness and mutual reciprocity as well as
the irreplaceability of each and every charisma and ministry within the Church. He also explains the ecclesiastic identity of lay believers and what the Council mean by saying that "according to their vocation lay believers should search for the Kingdom of God dealing with timely things, ordering them as God commands" and that their secular nature is individual and special.
In the second part, in the light of challenges and dfficutties, the author denotes the space for lay believers' services inside a parish community. Then he follows the Cotrncil structure, stopping at the possibilities and requiremenls for the active participation of lay believers in the life of the Church, especially in the three areas of ecclesiastic life and activities (evangelisation, liturgy and ministering).
