The CBCK must keep a close relation with the members of religious institutes and societies of apostolic life. The CBCK must hold the ‘Council of Bishops and Religious’ twice a year or on an appropriate occasion.
The representatives of the Korean Conference of Major Superiors of Men’s Religious Institutes and Societies of Apostolic Life and the Association of Major Superiors of Religious Women can be invited to the meeting of the General Assembly by the Permanent Council of the CBCK to give their opinion when needed (cf. Statutes of the CBCK, art. 40, 41).
