and innovative exhibition
THE GREAT EVENT.
preview of our 2022 Exhibitors
MADE IN ITALY AND THE BEST INTERNATIONAL PRODUCTION
TANEXPO is the first trade show in which we are going to exhibit in Italy. After the postponements caused by the pandemic, the exhibition is now scheduled on 1,2,3 July 2021 in Bologna Fiere exhibition center.
We will participate in the show together with the Italian companies Ecumenicus, Genuflex, Incas Distribuzioni and Lauretana Arte.
Morover Argenti, Giovinarte, LAL, Pema, Tiesse, Urna Concept will exhibit with their own booth.
We trust this will be a constructive experience for the restart of the industry bringing new collaborations and growth opportunities for all the companies involved.
In the desire to enhance the artistic skills of manufacturers in the sacred sector and in the search for an ever greater tension towards the 'noble simplicity' advocated by the II Vatican Council, the Scientific Committee of DEVOTIO on the occasion of the third edition proposes the Exhibition-contest “THE DALMATIC DURING THE PASCHAL VIGIL. A selection of the production”.
The Pontifical Yearbook 2021 and the Annuarium Statisticum Ecclesiae 2019 were published in March. According to the data reported, the number of Catholics in the world increased to an amount of 1,345 million. The statistical data, referring to 2018 and 2019, show that the number of Catholics increased in Africa, Asia, Oceania and in the Americas. On the other hand, Europe mark a slight decline compared to the population that has an almost zero trend.
THE PASTORAL CONVERSION
Everyone can have a role in the Church, respecting each one's vocation: this is the main focus of “The pastoral conversion of the Parish community in the service of the evangelising mission of the Church”, published by the Congregation for the Clergy. The document discusses various parish reform projects, providing guidelines for the active participation of the laity in pastoral life.
The second rendezvous, previously scheduled in 2020, is the 52nd International Eucharistic Congress to be held from 5 to 12 September 2021 in Budapest.
