After the second national meeting of the Subcommittee for Pastoral Care of Pilgrimages under the CBCK Committee for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and itinerants, Which was held from August 21 to 22, 2006 at St J. Hasang Education Center in Daejeon, the Subcommittee for the Pastoral Care of Pilgrimages under the CBCK Committee for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerants organized three subdivisions; for external cooperation, for pastoral care of domestic pilgrimages, and for pastoral care of overseas pilgrimages.
The subdivision works for the development of shrines and organizing the actions and directions to guide pilgrims with the proper information. Each subdivision takes its own role. The subdivision for external cooperation will play a role in finding ways to deal with administrative matters about the development of shrines. The Subdivision for Pastoral Care of Domestic Pilgrimage will provide the website to give information of shrines. The Subdivision for Pastoral Care of Foreign Pilgrimages will seek a hedge against the imprudent pilgrimages to overseas shrines contrary to the spirit of the Church.
The organization of the subdivisions will open a new chapter in the development of shrines and the pastoral care for pilgrims in the Catholic Church in .
On the subject of “Encounter with bishops and the laity”, the school will provide eight lectures altogether. During the course, six lectures are given by bishops, including the Most Rev. Michael Pak Jeoong-il and Most Rev. René Dupont.
