22 Apr, 2024 | Bishops, Church, News, World

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the 2004 major enlargement of the European Union – which took place at the time in Dublin – the bishops of COMECE, gathered in Łomża (Poland) for their Spring Assembly from April 17-19, 2024.

At their meeting the bishops adopted the statement ‘Let us continue building Europe together’.  The bishops support the prospect of future enlargements, saying: “It is not only a geopolitical necessity for stability in our continent, but a strong message of hope for the citizens who desire living in peace and justice”.

COMECE is composed of the Catholic Bishops’ Conferences of all Member States of the European Union.  It was established in 1980 with the approval of the Holy See to represent the EU Bishops’ Conferences before the EU institutions.  COMECE carries out a dialogue with the EU institutions, providing contributions that promote common good and a human-centred approach in EU policies.
