A program of on-sight exposure for bishops was carried out at Haenuri Center for Severely Handicapped Persons (Director: Rev. Joachim Lee Ki-su) in Hwasung on November 4, 2015.

 

Four bishops participated in this program and shared time with the people of the Center. They looked around the Center and helped the people, playing and eating with them. Most Rev. Boniface Choi Ki-san, Bishop of Incheon, promised that he will pray for the handicapped, their families, and the staff members of the Center. He said, “when I look into the pure hearts of these people, I cannot but reflect on the grumpy remarks and attitudes that I made whenever I was in difficult situations.” Most Rev. Lucas Kim Woon-hoe, Bishop of Chunchon and Apostolic Administrator of Hamhung, said, “it seems to be a quality time for the handicapped, when they can engage in programs such as ‘making pottery by hand’ and ‘horticultural farming’ with their pure enthusiasm.”

 

Father Lee showed his appreciation to the bishops and asked them to give positive consideration to the effective utilization of the Church buildings, which have many spaces not in use especially during weekdays, for the handicapped who are desperately in need of institutes and group homes where they can stay for a long or short period of time. They also need independence education as a foundation for their future life.

 

This was the second program of on-sight exposure for bishops which started last year. Other bishops also participated in various programs of on-sight exposure in three small groups at: the sites of the Four Major Rivers Project near Nakdong River (Nov. 6); Delkkotmaeul, a welfare facility for the homeless (Nov. 17); small Christian communities at Sanseongdong Parish in the Diocese of Daejeon (Nov. 18).
