Taiwan’s bishops call for evangelization of nation

Catholic World News - February 11, 2010

A year after the Church in Taiwan commemorated the 150th anniversary of the nation’s evangelization, the nation’s bishops have called upon the faithful to take part in the evangelization of the nation. The new pastoral letter-- entitled “Put out into the deep, participate in evangelization!”-- notes that “there are still many people who need to know the Gospel of Christ.”

“Being a Taiwanese Christian means to be a preacher of the Gospel, they add. “We have to be concerned about our own spirituality, improve our knowledge of the catechism, Holy Scripture, theology.”

The nation of 22.7 million is 93% Buddhist and Taoist, 4% Protestant, and 1.3% Catholic.
