Family and enculturation in Africa discussed at CDF-sponsored meeting

.- The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) wrapped up a meeting in Bunju, Tanzania, on July 3 with the presidents of the doctrinal committees from the various bishops’ conferences of Africa.
 
According to L’Osservatore Romano, the meeting’s primary purpose was to promote the work of the doctrinal committees and to seek out better ways for them to collaberate with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
 
Among the issues discussed was the role of the committees in supporting the bishops' transmission of the Catholic faith, as well as the enculturation of the Gospel, inter-religious dialogue and the situation of the family in Africa.
 
After the opening Mass on July 1, celebrated by Cardinal Polycarp Pengo of Dar-es-Salaam, Cardinal William Levada, prefect of the CDF, addressed the participants, outlining some of the theological foundations of the doctrinal committees and what their mission is in light of the bishop’s role as teacher of the faith.
