Pro-life movement must 'broaden appeal'
The Catholic Bishops' Conference held its fifth pro-life movement coordinators training program on March 12-13 in Kkottongnae (flower village).
Church anti-abortion and anti-euthanasia campaigns at parish and diocesan level have not been looked upon favorably by non-Catholics. Coordinators need to convey in a positive way the importance of life, the gathering of around 70 coordinators heard.
John Bosco Yun Kyung-jung, life movement manager of the One-Body One-Sprit Movement said, “A lot of small Christian communities which practice the culture of life need to be established in parishes. It’s important to create an environment where the faithful can get the life movement’s message across.”
The training has been held every year since 2006.
