KOREAN MISSIONARIES IN PREPARATION FOR OVERSEAS MISSION

          ROME, 1 (NE) The Catholic Church in South Korea has shown a great growth in the last years in the number of baptized as well as in a rise in vocations to priestly and consecrated life. Due to this it has been able to sent missionary help to neighboring countries, some of which - as North Korea, China, and Vietnam- have adopted a hostile attitude if not open persecution against the Church.

          Last week 33 Korean missionaries concluded a course of preparation under the name "Education for Mission Abroad Programme." As Fides agency informed, the course is the first in its kind and aims to ensure the doctrinal and pastorals aspects that all missionaries should manage in order to be witnesses of Christ and evangelize people of several languages, cultures and religions.
