What's CBCK

 Episcopal Commissions

 

The CBCK established four standing Episcopal Commissions at its 1981 Autumn General Assembly (Oct. 14-17): the Episcopal Commission for Clergy & Religious, the Epliscopal Commission for Doctrine, the Episcopal Commission for Pastoral (present Episcopal Commission for Mission & Pastoral Care) and the Episcopal Commission for Social Affairs. Later, it also established two Special Episcopal Commissions: the Special Episcopal Commission for the Reconciliation of the Korean People at the 1997 Autumn General Assembly (Oct. 13-17), and the Special Episcopal Commission to Promote Beatification and Canonization at the 2001 Autumn General Assembly (Oct. 15-18).

Established for an effective running of the General Assembly, the Episcopal Commissions examine and deliberate matters of general affairs of every sectors of the Catholic Church in Korea and at the same time direct and supervise their affiliated organizations. The Episcopal Commissions are mandated by the General Assembly of the CBCK to study and make reports on all matters related to their concern and to promote a close relationship with organizations related to their apostolate.

The Episcopal Commissions hold at least two annual meetings. In principle the Episcopal Commissions have their secretary and can be assisted by experts. The secretaries of the Episcopal Commissions and the National Committees as well as the superiors of the national organizations must take part in the meeting convoked by the Executive Secretary of the CBCK to coordinate their activities and to promote mutual cooperation.
