Kimbondo (Congo) -- Conference for priests in CAFAS

In connection with the recent issuance of the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, on October 31 a study conference for priests was held at the Centre Africain de Formatrion et d’Action Sociale (CAFAS), at Kimbondo, near Kinshasa.

Msgr. Jacques-Marie Nzir, Secretary of the Bishops’ Commission for the Doctrine of the Faith, Fr. Marcel Ndjondjo, Professor of Canon Law, and Fr. Charles Kombe, head of the Catechesis Commission for the Archdiocese of Kinshasa, were the three speakers. They spoke of the need to rediscover the Catechism’s doctrinal value and its importance for the teaching of the faith.

There were many questions from the audience, above all in connection with practical aspects of the use of the Catechism in one’s own priestly life and in pastoral work. Among other topics, the speakers stressed the usefulness of the Catechism’s structure for communicating the faith: profession of faith, celebration of the Christian mystery, life in Christ, prayer.
