This morning we have participated in three workshops:

A discussion on

  • whether we can support a movement for the exclusion of religion in European politics.  Delegates recognised that the message of Jesus had influenced modern European structures, including those of Human Rights and justice.  They believed it played an integral part in European culture;
  • preparation for an international Council to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the end of the last General Council of the Church (Vatican II).  This would bring together the many lively initiatives that are underway across the Christian world to realise the mission of the Church (the People of God)
  • social justice across Europe and in Africa.

The final outcomes of these discussions will be announced in the formal reports of the meetings.
