Polish churches seek to win fans at June soccer tournament
Warsaw, Poland (ENInews)--Poland's churches are hoping to win fans for God as they launched a welcoming program for June's Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) championship. "Let's show nobility of heart, a Polish hospitality shaped by the Gospel and an example of Christian openness to visitors," the Roman Catholic Bishops Conference said on 28 May. Poland's predominant church has unveiled a series of pastoral initiatives for the championship, which is being co-hosted with neighboring Ukraine. The 8 June-1 July tournament is the first major international football event to be hosted by post-Communist countries. [418 words, ENI-12-0311]
