His Holiness Pope Francis has appointed Luis Antonio G. Cardinal Tagle as envoy to Asian bishops’ meeting in Bangkok on Saturday, August 27, 2022.
The Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conference (FABC) is scheduled to have its 50th general assembly on October 30, 2022.
According to CBCP News, Cardinal Tagle will preside over the Closing Mass of FABC to be held at the Assumption Cathedral in Bangkok, Thailand.
The Asian bishops’ meeting will begin on October 12 at the Baan Phu Waan Pastoral Center of the Archdiocese of Bangkok.
The theme of the conference is “FABC 50: Journeying together as peoples of Asia …and they went a different way.” (Mt 2:12).
The 19-day conference will “reflect on the re-emerging and emerging realities and challenges of the Church in Asia”.
Before being appointed to the dicastery for Evagelization at the Vatican, Cardinal Tagle headed the FABC’s Office of Theological Concerns for many years while he was still the archbishop of Manila. (Jheng Prado/RCAM-AOC)
