  • Description

    MORE THAN 2,500 ROMAN CATHOLIC LAYMEN TODAY (WEDNESDAY) BEGAN A WEEK-LONG MEETING DURING WHICH THEY WERE SCHEDULED TO CONSIDER, AMONG OTHER MATTERS, THE CHURCH'S ATTITUDE TO BIRTH CONTROL AND SOCIAL WORK.

    THE ASSEMBLY, THE THIRD WORLD CONGRESS FOR THE LAY APOSTOLATE, IS THE FIRST MEETING OF ITS KIND SINCE THE VATICAN COUNCIL OF 1962/6??? GAVE LAYMEN A MORE IMPORTANT AND ACTIVE ROLE IN CHURCH WORK.

    THE MAIN AIM OF THE MEETING IS TO INCREASE THE INTEREST AND PARTICIPATION OF LAY ROMAN CATHOLICS IN THE WORK OF THE CHURCH.

    THE MEETING IS BEING HELD AT THE SAME TIME AS THE NEWLY-FORMED ROMAN CATHOLIC SYNOD. THE LAY CONGRESS IS ALSO BEING ATTENDED BY OBSERVERS FROM OTHER CHRISTIAN CHURCHES, INCLUDING ANGLICANS, LUTHERANS, METHODISTS, RUSSIAN AND GREEK ORTHODOX.
