Pastoral Communication: Investigating the Field

Pastoral Communication ParticipantsMore than a dozen priests, religious and lay people from China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Philippines attended the three-day workshop on Pastoral Communication: Investigating the Field from May 5 to 7, 2013.

Resource person Franz-Josef Eilers, svd has led the participants to an in-depth look of the field of study and pastoral activity. He stressed that pastoral communication is concerned less about technical means, than with forming a communicative spirituality reflecting the heart of the Good Shepherd.

In the end, the participants resolved to foster and promote “prayer and contemplation” so that all in ministry would communicate according to the communicative attitude and disposition of Jesus Christ. A repeat of this workshop is foreseen for August 2013. The exact dates will be communicated later.
