Island studies as a grand theme was initiated in 2018 in Jakarta, when the consortium developed its membership to include the representatives from the University of the Philippines, Universitas Indonesia, Universitas Gadjah Mada and Universitas Kristen Indonesia. The first round of the series of this general theme was hosted by the Ateneo de Manila University in 2019 and the subsequent colloquia and conferences will be hosted in Jakarta, Yogyakarta, and Korea.

The Steering Committee of the consortium is composed of Dr. Vincenz Serrano ( ADMU), Dr. Maria Luisa Torres Reyes (UST) Dr. Ramon Guillermo (UP), Dr. Hope Sabanpan-Yu (USC), Inseop Shin (KU), Dr. Paulus Sarwoto (USD), Dr. Ied Veda R.

The role of Catholic shrines and pilgrimage sites in the evangelization of the Church in the divided, complex and plural world in Indonesia and Southeast Asia

This collaborative research looks into the role of Catholic shrines and pilgrimage sites in the evangelization of the Church in the divided, complex and plural world, especially in Indonesian and Southeast Asia. By taking a number of shrines and their organizations as case studies, this research is guided by these questions: why do Catholic shrines in Indonesia and Southeast Asia continue to draw pilgrims, including those of other faiths?

This research is part of a larger study-project done by the International Center for Mission and Formation (CIAM – Centro Internazionale di Animazione Missionaria), an agency within the Vatican’s Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples in Rome. This study-project is on the theme of Popular Piety and Evangelization: Asian and African Perspectives that brings together a small group of scholars with expertise or interest on topics and themes related to popular piety and evangelization to explore together what it means for the Church to be engaged in evangelization in Asia and Africa.
