MACAU: Redemptoris Mater College For Evangelization In Asia

The Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples has officially established the Redemptoris Mater College for Evangelization in Asia in Macau, entrusting it to the Neo-catechumenal Way.

The College aims to prepare future priests for evangelization in Asia, accompanying them “in the life of prayer and the theological and cardinal virtues, with a serious commitment to philosophical and theological studies and to an action of itinerant evangelization.” 

The priests formed in the institute “may be sent, according to the Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, to the requesting dioceses” in different Asian territories and nations, according to the pastoral needs of those who request them. 

“In this mission of evangelization – it is emphasized – presbyters can be assisted by entire families, formed in the Neo-catechumenal Way, willing to be also sent.”
