The laity in Antipolo used to be represented in the Diocesan Pastoral Council which was composed of clergy, religious men and women and lay people which was organized in January 21, 1987. It was later found more convenient to organize a purely lay organization, thus on November 6, 1992, then Bishop Protacio G. Gungon approved a Constitution and By-laws for the laity, hence the CLAN officially came into existence thereafter.
