A workshop on the study of documents from the Second Vatican Council that ended earlier this month aimed to promote a greater understanding of the pivotal event which marks its 50th anniversary later this year. Father John Baptist Zhang, who organized the training in Shijiazhuang city, said it aimed to encourage greater knowledge of the details of Vatican II and its impact on the Church. The training drew 10 bishops, including three bishop candidates, dozens of priests and members of religious orders in China. Two Chinese-language books on Vatican II were also published to coincide with the training and to meet a growing demand for information in this commemorative year.
