Latin American Bishops’ Council organizes conference on Church’s social teaching

.- As part of the preparations for its 5th General Conference in 2007, the Latin American Bishops’ Council (CELAM) is meeting in Mexico City the 2nd Conference on the Social Teachings of the Church entitled, “Imagining a continent for all: Justice, solidarity, and the witness of Christians before the new social challenges in Latin America and the Caribbean.”

The Conference, which will be held until September 15, seeks to discern the signs of the times on the continent in order to help ecclesial communities address diverse realities and achieve solutions for today’s social problems.

In addition, the Conference will focus on the need for the people of God “to assume their own mission in the world with greater responsibility,” offering “motivation to sustain the hopes of men and women on the continent, above all, of the poor and those who suffer, in light of the Gospel and the Social teachings of the Church.”
