.- The Pontifical Council for Culture has convened its members and consultors on the American continent for a plenary meeting that will take place in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil,) from June 7 to 12. According to sources at the pontifical council, headed by Cardinal Paul Poupard, the theme of the meeting, which follows the encounter that took place in Puebla (Mexico) in 2001, is "The Pastoral Ministry of Culture, a New Look at the Dawn of the Third Millennium."

Following opening remarks by Cardinal Eusebio Oscar Scheid, S.C.I., Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro, Cardinal Poupard will speak on “Current Cultural Challenges and the New Dynamism of the Pastoral Ministry of Culture in America.”

The eight scheduled work sessions will treat various aspects of the pastoral ministry of culture: the family; youth and education; the media; universities and the public square; indigenous and Afro-American cultures; migration; rural culture; urban culture; sects and the path to beauty.

In the final session a document will be read and approved that will serve as a guide for the next continental meeting in 2009.
