ASIA/TAIWAN - Strengthen the spirit of faith, hope and charity in every parish: local communities set to work

Tuesday, 25 May 2004

Taipei (Fides Service) - Parishes all over Taiwan have welcomed the call from Cardinal Paul Shan, President of the Regional Chinese Bishops’ Conference, to build parish communities where people live authentic faith, hope and charity. Dioceses, parishes, church associations and movements in Taiwan are organising days of reflection, experience sharing, special prayers in order to grow in faith, hope and charity and improve efforts for evangelisation. During a recent two-day Seminar representatives from all church realities on the Island identified challenges facing Christian life style and mission of evangelisation and ways to strengthen parishes in a spirit of faith, hope and charity. All the participants renewed their total dedication to loving and honouring God and helping neighbours.
