Madrid, Spain, 16-18 September. About 40 national delegates responsible for university pastoral work coming from all the Bishops’ Conferences of Europe will meet in Madrid from Friday afternoon 16 September to Sunday 18 September. The annual meeting, promoted by the Council of European Episcopal Conferences (CCEE), is taking place in Spain at the invitation of Mgr Agustín Cortés Soriano, Bishop of Sant Feliu de Llobregat and responsible in the Spanish Bishops’ Conference for university pastoral work. In the light, too, of the work of the European Congress on university pastoral work which CCEE organised in Munich last January and which will be introduced by rev. Ferenc Janka, Secretary of “Catechesis, school and university” Commission, the main theme of the Madrid meeting will be University pastoral work at the service of the new evangelisation. Through the contributions of Mgr Sergio Lanza, theologian and General Assistant at Milan’s “Sacred Heart” Catholic University, and His Grace Mgr Nikola Eterovic, Secretary General of the Synod of bishops, the participants aim to make their contribution to the XIII Ordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops (Vatican City, 7-28 October 2012) which will tackle precisely the theme of the new evangelisation. In the course of the meeting, participants will also have the opportunity to report on the situation of university pastoral work in their respective countries and compare the possible working proposals at the European level in the light, too, of the recent celebration of World Youth Day (Mardid, 16-21 August 2011) and the Munich Congress.
The meeting will be opened on Friday 16 September with a welcome from Mgr Augustín Cortés Soriano and fromMgr Marek Jedraszewski, President of the University section of CCEE’s “Catechesis, school and university” Commission. The work will then be introduced by Mgr Lorenzo Leuzzi, Secretary of the “University” section of CCEE’s Commission. Subsequently, Don Augustin del Agua, expert from the University section of CCEE’s “Catechesis, school and university” Commission, will report on the situation of university pastoral work in Spain.
The meeting wil be marked by moments of prayer and the celebration of Mass. The meeting will take place behind closed doors and a News Release will be published at the end of the meeting.
