The Institut Catholique de Paris hosted a conference Tuesday to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the leadership organization for Catholic bishops' conferences in Africa, at which the Church in Africa was invited to reflection on inculturation and its relationship with the Church in Europe.
The Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar will hold its golden jubilee in Kampala July 26-30.
Brigitte Cholvy, a professor who directs post-graduate courses at the Institut Catholique de Paris, discussed the April 2 conference with La Croix, a French Catholic daily.
She told the publication that the interation between African and European theology means there is a need to discuss "the task of inculturation within a globalized context."
