The Dicastery for Interreligious Dialogue, in collaboration with the Department of Religious Studies at Fu Jen Catholic University, is organizing an international workshop entitled “Christians Fostering Dialogue with Confucians: Guidelines and Prospects”, to be held on 8-9 March 2024 at Fu Jen Catholic University in New Taipei City, ROC – Taiwan.

This event is part of an ongoing initiative by the Dicastery for Interreligious Dialogue aimed at formulating official guidelines for Catholics engaging in dialogue with followers of Confucianism. A number of experts in Confucianism from around the world have taken part in previous online meetings, sharing their insights and expertise.

The forthcoming in-person meeting represents a significant step forward in this initiative, and provides an opportunity to share project insights with a broader audience interested in promoting Confucian-Christian dialogue.

The drafting of guidelines will be followed by a final process of revision, and is expected to serve as a valuable resource for individuals, organizations, and communities both within and beyond the Catholic Church that seek to engage in dialogue with followers of Confucianism.
