.- Organizers have announced that a Second Asian Convention of Divine Mercy will be held this fall in the Diocese of Keningau, Sabah, Malaysia. The convention, held Nov. 17-20, will be hosted by Bishop Datuk Cornelius Piong. Bishop John Ha of Kuching will also attend.

The first convention, attended by 271 delegates comprising of laity and clergy from 11 Asian countries and 29 dioceses in the Philippines, was held last fall in the Philippines.

The convention’s primary objective, say the meeting’s organizers, is to gather those active in promoting devotion to Divine Mercy from around Asia for consultations and deliberations on how to effectively serve Jesus, as Apostles of Divine Mercy. The convention, however, is open to all.

The Apostolate of Divine Mercy seeks to respond to Pope John Paul II’s invitation to make God’s merciful love known to all people within the Magisterium of the Church and to form Centers of Divine Mercy Spirituality at the parish or diocesan levels, under the guidance and supervision of the local bishop.
