Cardinal to mark Korean War anniversary by dedicating church on border

Catholic World News - June 19, 2013

Cardinal Nicholas Cheong Jin-suk, the archbishop emeritus of Seoul, will dedicate a new church on the border between North and South Korea on June 25, the sixtieth anniversary of the end of the Korean War.

“We will pray for those who died in the war” and “ask God to grant us serenity,” the prelate said.

The Catholic Church of Repentance and Redemption in Paju will be a “clear symbol of the desire for peace and reconciliation in the country,” the South Korean bishops’ conference added in a statement. The building is modeled on a cathedral destroyed by Communists.
