Vatican City, Mar 20, 2010 / 16:43 pm
A third plenary meeting in as many years will take place in the Vatican next week between representatives of the Catholic Church in China and superiors from the Roman Curia. Like last year, formation will again be the topic of discussions.
The Holy See has announced the March 22-24 plenary meeting between Chinese and Vatican representatives.
Representatives first visited in March of 2008 to speak about the May 2007 Letter from the Holy Father to Chinese Catholics.
During three days of meetings, the commission discussed the reception of the Pope's Letter. It examined the theological principles proposed therein and their function within the Chinese Catholic community.
