Vatican conference focus on new sects, religious movements

Catholic World News - May 17, 2013

About 40 Church officials participated in a May 16 conference at the Vatican on the challenges posed by new sects.

The conference participants, drawn from different Vatican offices and pontifical universities, and from the Rome diocese, reflected on the need for a strong pastoral response to new religious movements.

The conference was organized by four different Vatican offices: the Pontifical Council for Inter-Religious Dialogue, the Congregation for Evangelization, the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity, and the Pontifical Council for Culture. The day’s sessions, held at the Domus Sanctae Marthae, were chaired by Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran.
