Workshop for the Staff Members of Caritas in Korea

 

 

The CBCK Caritas Committee and Caritas Cheongju of the Diocese of Cheongju jointly held the “2014 Annual Workshop for the Staff Members of Caritas” at Kkotongnae Training Institute of Love from April 10 to 12, 2014.

 

The theme of the workshop was “Caritas, Communication with the World”, which will also be the theme of the 6th Convention of Catholic Welfare to be held in October this year.

 

Along with Rev. Francis Jung Sung-hwan, Secretary of the CBCK Caritas Committee, many priests and staff members of Caritas from all dioceses participated in this workshop to ponder upon diverse methods to communicate the activities of Caritas to the public on the basis of the recognized necessity of evangelization ad extra.

 

At this workshop, the participants had time for group discussion among the staff members in various fields: corporate management; facilities; parishes; supporters and resources promotion; public relations; education; international cooperation. At the beginning of the workshop, Rev. Jung explained the background and content of Evangelii Gaudium, the first Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis.

 

The Subcommittee for Educational Development under the CBCK Caritas Committee and Caritas Korea International had time to introduce their activities respectively. The Subcommittee said that it will publish the Guidelines for the Practice of Catholic Social Welfare which will be a help for the field workers in their activities. The Subcommittee is also planning to develop a program for the spiritual formation of the workers in the area of social welfare. Rev. Simeon Lee Jong-keon, Executive Director of Caritas Korea, introduced the purport, background, and action plan of “One Family, Food for All!”, a global campaign against hunger by Caritas Internationalis.
