For the very first time Fondacio Asia will host
Fondacio International Meeting in May 2018!
What is Fondacio International Congress?
Held every 5 years, it is the highest instance of governance in Fondacio. It brings together 150 delegates and invited guests from the four continents for:
- Building unity and communion
- Welcoming the orientations for the future (2018-2023)
- Election of the new President and Council of Fondacio
- Ratification of any statutory texts or documents
It will be significant for all delegates and friends of Fondacio to discover Asia and for Fondacio Asia to become more visible in its existence and activities. The Pontifical Ecclesial Assistant to Fondacio will also be present during the Congress.
All the delegates of Fondacio are welcome to join the Exposure from the 1st to 3rd May. In fact, as Vatican II encourages us, the path of becoming human passes through our encounter with the ‘other’ (GS, 1).
The Forum will look at the theme of “Evangelization and Development”, with the challenges, hopes and new responses it calls forth – how are we to be ‘a spark at the heart of the world today’? Of special reference will be the writings of Pope Francis in Joy of the Gospel and Laudato Si; and some excellent resource persons. The Forum promises to be a rich encounter with participants from different continents and countries.
For the Congress, only the Fondacio participants (official delegates and invited guests) will join.
Lastly, the Leadership meeting will be limited to out-going and in-coming office bearers.
For those who are unable to join any part of this International Meeting we ask you to join us in prayer and communion; and the synod reflection process that is happening in your countries. Nothing is lost in the mercy of God!
