Becoming the Church of the Poor & Marginalised in Asia
This statement from the Bishops Institute for Social Action VIII, held in Bangkok 18 – 24 January 2012 gives a history of the BISA series, description of the methodology of BISA VIII, and lists the proposals for the future of BISA, and a program for action.
A commitment is given by participants to implement at least three actions:
- pay just wages in our own parishes, institutions and organisations
- ensure proper working conditions of our workers
- ensure representation and participation of the laity, both women and me,in our deliberative and design making bodies.
