Introduction

Europe

In 2003, Pope John Paul II firmly linked Europe with Christianity in his Apostolic Exhortation Ecclesia in Europa. He said: "There can be no doubt that the Christian faith belongs to the foundations of European culture... Modern Europe itself, which has given the democratic ideal and human rights to the world, draws its values from its Christian heritage." The Bishops' Conference, through the Department of International Affairs, works in close collaboration with two organisations on European issues - COMECE and CCEE.
