Asia-Pacific animator Michael Walker visits CLC Korea

Michael Walker from CLC Australia and Agnes Shin from CLC Korea are two of the five members of the Asia-Pacific animating team. The other three are Theresa Wang (Taiwan), Daphne Ho (Hong Kong) and Greg “Rios” Tjai (Indonesia). The animating team’s mandate is to promote links and cooperation between National Communities in the region between Assemblies. They meet every couple of months via Skype.

On 24 July Michael was in Seoul and visited the CLC Korea Secretariat where he was greeted by Agnes and other members of CLC Korea. The President was unavailable because she was of course in Buenos Aires attending the World General Assembly!

Michael spoke about CLC Australia’s common apostolic mission, to promote and offer the First Spiritual Exercises, and presented a copy of the First Spiritual Exercises book by Michael Hansen SJ.

Agnes spoke about activities undertaken by CLC Korea including weekly lectures and annual immersion programs where young people are given the opportunity to experience nature. The collage Agnes is showing Michael here is last year’s nature immersion in Nepal; this year a much larger group will travel to Mongolia.

CLC Korea have expressed their willingness to host the next Asia-Pacific Regional Assembly in 2019 so we can expect to see more of this meeting room next year!
