Hong Kong moves to 
promote lay ministry

 

A Conference on Sharing the Experience of Lay Ministry among Chinese Catholic communities from around the world is scheduled in Cheung Chau in early November to mark the end of the Year of the Laity.

It comes as the Church is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the opening of Vatican II and 20 years after the Catechism of the Catholic Church was published, both of which events pushed the importance of the role of lay people in all facets of the mission and ministry of the Church.
