MANILA, June 18, 2013— The Association of Major Religious Superiors in the Philippines (AMRSP) will hold its joint convention in Davao City next month to tackle Church matters and pressing national concerns.
Hundreds of religious from different religious orders and congregations are expected at the gathering, where they will reflect on the theme “Faith and Inculturation: Celebration of the Year of Faith.”
Organizers said the biennial meeting is communion with the Universal Church in celebrating the Year of Faith.
Another rationale of the upcoming convention on July 1 to 5 is also in preparation for the celebration of the 500 years of Christianity in the Philippines.
“Hence, this is our own share in reflecting the faith in the Philippine context 500 years after,” the AMRSP said.
The AMRSP is the joint forum of the Association of Major Religious Superiors of Men in the Philippines (AMRSMP) and the Association of Major Religious Superiors of Women in the Philippines (AMRSWP).
The just concluded separation conventions of AMRSMP and AMRSWP reflected on inculturation and indigenous spirituality, and this year’s event will sum up the result of both meetings. (CBCPNews)
