Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin – September 2016

The 20th International Congress of the Renovabis Foundation was held from August 31 to September 2 in Freising, Germany, under the theme: “Witnesses of the Gospel – designers of the world”

His Grace Bishop Moushegh Babayan attended the Congress representing the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin with the blessings of His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Pariarch and Catholicos of All Armenians; and at the invitation of the “Renovabis” General Secretary Mr. Gerard Albert.

The International Congress, a solidarity initiative of the German Catholics with the people in Central and Eastern Europe, has been convened each year since 1997. Various issues are discussed which have a particular importance in Central and Eastern Europe, and it serves as a unique platform for dialogue between East and West.

During the 20th Congress, workshops addressed the role of religious organizations in Central and Eastern European life, and reflected on Church-society relations and their impact on the process of building the world.
