Pontifical Council for Culture explores collaboration with Asia, African governments

Catholic World News - April 12, 2012

The Pontifical Council for Culture is seeking to strengthen ties with cultural representatives of African and Asian governments.

Father Theo Mascarenhas, an official of the Pontifical Council for Culture, reported to Vatican Radio about a March 22 event that drew representatives from 22 African nations. The session was patterned on a similar event hosted by the Vatican office last year for Asian nations’ representatives.

At each event, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi briefed the government officials on the functions of the Pontifical Council for Culture, which he heads. The officials were then asked for their own ideas about possible forms of collaborations.
