Seminar on the Mission of the Catholic Church in Bangladesh

Jessore, 4-6 June, 2018. The premises of the NSCTC have become alive once more with 18 people, mainly sisters, fathers and catechists of the Khulna Catholic Diocese, who for two days have endeavored a lot to understand the meaning of mission in its relationship with the church’s nature, and then, its practical actualization in Bangladesh. It eventually turned out clearly that mission is what defines the church itself, in such a way as a church cannot be such if it is not missionary. A maturity of a local church may be measured on the extent of its missionary attitude. In practice, taking the hint from the pope’s Mongolbartar Anondo, mission in Bangladesh should restate the option for the poor, the choice of peripheries, becoming thus a field hospital, a place of respite, healing and mercy!
