Commissions

"The Plenary Assembly nominates or establishes delegates or permanent commissions so that they might examine permanently matters relating to a particular kind of problem or a particular position of people; the Presidency can set up commissions ad tempus" (CCEE Statutes).

Through its Commissions, CCEE organizes various meetings which translate into real and effective collaboration of the particular churches where this collaboration reveals itself to be more necessary and urgent. Each Commission supports initiatives devised by the individual Bishops’ Conferences in different pastoral spheres. The CCEE Commissions are always chaired by a President who co-ordinates the work and supports the Commission’s initiatives.

This Commission is conscious of the importance of promoting the new evangelisation in the media culture, to establish a profound dialogue with the human person’s constituent needs in contemporary society.

The Commission regularly organizes meetings for the bishops responsible for social communications in the European Bishops’ Conferences and for experts, so as to be able to contribute to the profound reflection on the new technologies and new media and their relationship with the Church, so that these might also be above all tools at the service of the Gospel, collaborating in the mission of communicating and spreading the Word of God.

In recent decades, the migration situation in Europe has changed considerably and at the same time this phenomenon has received ever greater attention from the Church in the continent.

From the 1970s, meetings of bishops and national directors with responsibility for the pastoral care of migration have been organized, so that they can share pastoral experiences, examine issues which must be looked at from the point of view of the countries of origin and arrival and receive information important for the Christian communities about migration and ensuring that the Church’s voice can be heard in public opinion on the continent about the migration situation in Europe.

CCEE looks favourably on the intense mix of relationships which have been developed and which involve the representatives from the "Migrants and Refugees" section of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, Caritas Europa, the International Catholic Migration Commission, and Comece.

La sezione Custodia del Creato sostiene i diversi gruppi di lavoro che sviluppano la riflessione sulla responsabilità dell’uomo e della Chiesa nella custodia del Creato.

Tra il 1999 e il 2004 si sono svolti sei incontri su questo tema. In seguito è stato redatto un rapporto che sottolinea la necessità di uno sviluppo che segua i princìpi etici e la necessità dell’educazione delle nuove generazioni nella custodia della Creazione donata da Dio agli uomini.

Nel 2010 si è svolto un “pellegrinaggio verde” al quale hanno partecipato Vescovi e delegati responsabili per la custodia del Creato, per rafforzare la collaborazione e il dialogo fra le Chiese in Europa ed affermare che siano il bene comune e la solidarietà a guidare le politiche ambientali.
