FINAL STATEMENT OF 5TH AsIPA GENERAL ASSEMBLY (Part 4)


4. CHALLENGES AND RECOMMENDATIONS.

4.1 The presence of a large number of passive and un-churched members in our parishes is a great challenge to the SCCs.

4.2 In several Asian countries the socio-economic problems caused by migration, poverty and cultural upheavals are adversely affecting family life. The SCCs are called to respond to these realities in the light of the gospel.



4.3 Impelled by the Word of God, the SCCs are called to get involved in the social transformation of oppressive structures, based on the values of the Kingdom.



4.4 The Church is challenged to face the reality of finding ways and means of making the Eucharist an integral part of the life of the community.



4.5 The coordination of the efforts to form, strengthen and sustain SCCs in Asia is a demanding task.

4.6 The spirit of the ‘new way of being Church’ challenges SCC leaders and other Church leaders to exercise a non-dominating and facilitative style of leadership.

4.7 The SCCs are called to integrate faith and daily life form the Eucharist celebration so that their lives become sources of healing, unity and reconciliation.

4.8 The SCCs nourished by the Eucharist should become ‘Open Doors’ for faith seekers.
