PASTORALES FORUM
Support for the Churches in Eastern(Central)Europe


Association

History

The The ‘Pastorale Forum’ was founded by Paul M. Zulehner in 1989, who has since then been the chairman of the association. Cardinal Franz König held the honorary guardianship of the ‘Pastorale Forum’ from its founding until his death.

The idea for the establishing of the association was the result of numerous encounters between representatives of the churches in the context of the ‘real existing socialism’ and students at the Institute of Pastoral Theology at the Catholic Faculty of the University of Vienna. These experiences led after the miracle of the turning point (1989) to the decision to use the existing contacts and cultivate them in a new way.
