Church in Asia: Looking for New Ways of Mission
The Church in Asia has started a process of searching for new ways to work for peace, dialogue and evangelization in the multi-religious continent, where people suffer violence and poverty, according to Cardinal Charles Bo of Yangon, president of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences or FABC.
That was Cardinal Bo who spoke to media on Monday in Bangkok, mid-way through the two-week gathering of Asian bishops.
Besides celebrating the 50th anniversary of the FABC the church leaders and delegates are discussing ways to revise pastoral plans and priorities for the Church in Asia.
The general conference, the first such for FABC that began on Oct 12 has some 226 delegates, which included 20 cardinals, 120 bishops, 37 priests, and 49 lay people including eight nuns.
