Christians in Responsibility for Europe
The 17th International Congress of Renovabis is taking place in Freising/München, Germany, from 28 till 30 August 2013. The theme of the meeting is “Free and solidary: Christians in Responsibility for Europe.” The year 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the social-political “turnaround” in Central and Eastern Europe. The congress will take into account the areas of conflict of solidarity and freedom within the past-turnaround process. The changes of 1989 did not always lead people to more freedom and justice.
Pax Christi International will have a workshop together with “DELTA for the Balkans” on the spirituality of transformative democracy and interfaith cooperation in the Balkans. Katarina Kruhonja, former Board member from Croatia will be a resource person for the workshop. José Henríquez, Secretary General, and Fr. Paul Lansu, Senior Policy Advisor, will attend the Congress.
