The Bishops' Conference of Scotland is to host the annual meeting of spokespersons of the various Episcopal Conferences of the Catholic Church in Europe. The meeting will be held from May 18 - 21 in Glasgow.

Besides a full exchange of information and viewpoints on media relations and current issues facing the Bishops of Europe, the main theme will be the challenge of putting the Christian message across in an increasingly secular environment.

Among the other themes to be addressed will be the preparations for World Youth Day in Rome in August, which is expected to draw around two million young people to the Eternal City, and the possibility of further collaboration between the various press offices of the Bishops' Conferences of Europe.

The main speakers will be Bishop Donal Murray, the Bishop of Limerick in Ireland and Dr Jim McDonnell, Director of Catholic Communications Centre in London.

Around 20 participants are expected to attend from all over Europe. The meeting will be chaired by Monsignor Tom Connelly, Spokesman for the Catholic Bishops' Conference and by Dr Helmut Steindl, Spokesman for CCEE (The Council of European Bishops' Conferences).
