Church and Sports

 ‘Those who go in for sports with passion and with an ethical mind can also deepen human and Christian values', says Pope Benedikt XVI.

In this sense the church sees the chance in sports to manage the daily tasks of life with the help of a message from the Gospel and to create good scopes with it for people: within the family, school, church and community. Therefore the Pastoral Commission is committed to the development of human and Christian values of the FICEP and its associations in collaboration with the other commissions. The Pastoral commission's main concern is to respect the national situation regarding athletic and clerical terms and to regard this as the basis for mutual, international pastoral work in the sports area.
