The Korean Catholic Cultural Center broke ground on a new building project, to be devoted to the promotion of culture and art, during a ceremony in Gimpo, near Seoul. The building, a multi-storey structure expected to be finished in August 2012, will include an auditorium, dressing room and café. A ceremony marking the beginning of construction was held on July 3. Father Paul Park Yu-jin, art director of the center, said the new facility was intended to increase ministry opportunities. “It aims to diversify cultural ministry by providing culture and art content such as music, dance and theatre,” he said. “It will help evangelize our life through culture and art. It will be used to support and educate Catholic artists involved in a variety of cultural activities.” The new center was designed by Kim Seok-chul, professor of architecture and urban development, who also designed the landmark Seoul Arts Center.
