The First Overseas Mission School to be opened

 

The CBCK Committee for the Pastoral Care of Koreans Living Abroad (President: Most Rev. John Baptist Jung Shin-chul) opened the ‘Overseas Mission School’ jointly with the Korean Missionary Society (KMS) at the center of the KMS on March 7, 2012.

This Overseas Mission School has a great meaning being the first school established by the Catholic Church in Korea to train prospective overseas missionaries and to educate those who are interested in foreign mission, including diocesan priests and religious. The program of four semesters (32 week course) will help potential candidates, especially lay people, to have a better recognition of the importance of foreign mission work and to prepare them well for their vocation.

At the opening Mass for this program, Bishop Jung said, “The foreign mission is to follow faithfully the word of our Lord, ‘Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature’.” He added, “I hope this Overseas Mission School will play an important role in promoting awareness of the importance of foreign mission work and will encourage a missionary spirit among lay people.”
