“CHURCH OF THE POOR: PCP II After 20 Years”

Date Posted: Jan 16, 2011 at 06:37:19 AM


On January 13-15, 2011 the Nationwide Conference to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the Second Plenary Council of the Philippines (PCP II) will be held at the Adamson University Theater in Ermita, Manila. Organized by partner institutions Adamson University, St. Vincent of School of Theology (SVST), Mary, Mother of the Poor Foundation (MMP) and Socio-Pastoral Institute (SPI), this initiative is formally endorsed by the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines’ (CBCP) Episcopal Commission for Catechesis and Catholic Education (ECCCE) and Episcopal Commission on Seminaries. The theme of the conference is “CHURCH OF THE POOR: PCP II After 20 Years”.

 

The Conference aims to facilitate discussions on how the documents of PCP II have engaged the local church in its vision and mission by providing a forum for researchers in various disciplines, especially among theology students. It will also serve as a venue for dialogue on pastoral and theological matters concerning the local church, which may be helpful in exploring new ways of doing theology in the continuing education of both the clergy and laity.

 

Research papers reflecting on PCP II’s pastoral relevance and its challenges for the renewal of the local Church’s life and mission will be presented during the conference. It will be participated in by theology students (lay people, religious, and seminarians) from different schools of theology all over the country and by members of different Catholic lay movements.

 

Other lay movements and theological centers were also invited to have a closer study of PCP II documents and to write on any theme or concern addressed by the Council twenty years ago, or dwell on a relevant topic that could challenge the local Church to go beyond PCP II.

 

Bishops attending the conference include Bishop Pablo Virgilio David of the Archdiocese of Pampanga, Bishop Broderick Pabillo of the Archdiocese of Manila, Bishop Teodoro Bacani of the San Carlos Seminary Formation Complex and Archbishop Gaudencio Cardinal Rosales of the Archdiocese of Manila.
