Federation of Asian Bishops Conference

“…and they went a different way.” (Mt 2:12)


The FABC 50 General Conference will be held on October 12-30, 2022 at the Pastoral Center of the Archdiocese of Bangkok, Baan Phu Waan, Thailand.  The theme is “FABC 50: Journeying together as peoples of Asia“…and they went a different way.” (Mt 2:12). The General Conference marks the 50th anniversary of its foundation to reflect on the re-emerging and emerging realities and challenges of the Church in Asia.  She faces re-emerging realities and challenges ad extra, in the Asian reality that surrounds her, as well as emerging realities and challenges ad intra, as she turns the page from being a “mission church” to a “missionary Church.”

Welcome to FABC

The Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences (FABC) is a voluntary association of episcopal conferences in Asia, established with the approval of the Holy See. Its purpose is to foster among its members solidarity and co-responsibility for the welfare of Church and society in Asia. The decisions of the Federation are without juridical binding force; their acceptance is an expression of collegial responsibility.

The FABC, led by His Eminence Cardinal Charles Bo, FABC President, His Eminence Oswald Gracias, Convener of FABC 50, and the Archdiocese of Bangkok, will officially inaugurate The FABC 50 General Conference on August 22, 2022, at the Shrine of Blessed Nicholas Bunkerd Kitbamrun near the Baan Phu Waan complex, in Thailand.
