INDONESIA: Lay Catholic community heads in Central Java have discovered that serving their neighbors from different religious background helps their Catholic faith. “After serving as head of a neighborhood community, I found that this task helps my Catholic faith,” Fransiskus De Sales Pramono told participants during a recollection for Catholic neighborhood community heads on Jan. 23 at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Tegal.
