Catholic World News - July 11, 2011

Church leaders from some of Europe’s most prominent archdioceses have gathered in Rome this week for a meeting organized by the Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization, to discuss their initiatives for evangelization.

The new Pontifical Council, headed by Archbishop Salvatore (“Rino”) Fisichella, was created by Pope Benedict XVI last June. This week’s discussion brings together the archbishops of Barcelona, Brussels, Budapest, Cologne, Dublin, Lisbon, Liverpool, Paris, Turin, Vienna, and Warsaw; to discuss the various plans already underway in those archdioceses to revive interest in the Catholic faith.
