Church in Korea launches new TV channel and website

.- The Church in Korea has launched a media offensive that includes a new television channel, a new internet publication and a revamped website for the episcopate, according to the Fides news agency.

The bishops’ new website can be found at http://www.cbck.or.kr and includes a vast array of documents and electronic books that can be downloaded.  In addition, the bishops have launched a news service at http://hwahai.cbck.or.kr which will publish each month.  The first edition features a column by Bishop Lucas Kim Woon-hoe, president of the Bishops’ Committee for Reconciliation, who explains that the new service “seeks to contribute to understanding and reunification of the Korean people, as well as to strengthen the role of the Church as an agent of peace.”

The Korean Church’s new TV channel, UTV, has also been launched, although right now it is only broadcasting over the internet.

The Archdiocese of Seoul has also formed a Commission for Social Communications under the leadership of Auxiliary Bishop Andrew Yeom Soo-jung.  “The commission will help broadcasters and journalists in their relations with the Christian faith and in the proclamation of the Gospel,” reminding them of their task “to build a harmonious society and proclaim the truth,” he said.
