To facilitate deeper communion among different nations and expressions within the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, ICCRS has been promoting the concept of Regional Sub-Committees. ICCRS Sub-Committee for Asia-Oceania (ISAO) was formed after 42 leaders from the Middle East, South Asia, South East Asia, East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Oceania met together in Singapore on 9th and 10thDecember, 2006 for a time of prayer, sharing, discernment and planning under the auspices of ICCRS. The ISAO was reconstituted in December, 2010.
ISAO serves the CCR in Asia and Oceania as a centre of unity, communication and cooperation in order to fulfill Christ’s desire, “that they may all be one” (Jn 17:21), and to keep Christ’s body without division (1 Cor 12:4-31). The headquarters of ISAO is currently situated in Singapore. ISAO is responsible for strengthening fellowship within the Renewal in the Asia-Oceania Region, convening consultations and events and also for reaching out and supporting those countries which are in need of guidance and help.
