It engages with the Catholic Church through the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. As a gift,  members of the delegation gave Pope Francis a book with its history. "Let me thank you once more for this book.â? In return, the Pope thank them their work with the poor and needy as well as their missionary work of  evangelization.
