Statement by the Permanent Council of the Croatian Conference of Bishops

The parish offices of our arch/dioceses have recently received letters concerning citizens' initiatives, The Truth about Istanbul and The People Decide, in regard to the collection of signatures for a referendum, with the request to inform the faithful in the churches and permit signatures to be collected on church premises. The authors of these letters assert that they have notified the Croatian bishops about this matter, which may create certain ambiguities. The Permanent Council of the Croatian Conference of Bishops does not consider such activities to be appropriate in places of worship and they should not be announced in churches, as this would interfere with Sunday services

Commenting on the issue of the ratification of the Istanbul Convention in Croatia, Archbishop Puljić noted that the bishops do not accept some of the views expressed in the Convention but "wholeheartedly" support other parts relating to the protection of the vulnerable, the prevention of manipulation and exploitation, particularly women and children, but also every person.
