It gives me great pleasure to be informed that the Council of Diocesan priests in India (CDPD) is organising its XIII National Council meeting at Nagpur from 24th to 27th February, 2015, on the theme: "Effective ministry to the families in the light of the synod". On this occasion, I extend my warm greetings and good wishes to all the priests gathered for this meeting, and I assure them of my closeness in prayer. As I congratulate the CDPI for launching its own web site during the National Council meeting I invite the priests gathered to have fruitful discussions on various pastoral problems concerning families

My Dear Brother Priests,
As the Chairman of the Commission for VSCR, I welcome you to this webpage for the CDPI. The reason this webpage exists is to provide you with an inside view to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ ans to keep you informed of the activities of the Commission. Besides, it is also a means to establish contacts with each other. The events and insights of Priests are provided as resources to help guide our discernment of a call to the Priesthood.

Rev. Dr. Stephen Alathara
Deputy Secretary General, CCBI
I am happy to know that Conference of Diocesan Priests of India (CDPI) is launching a new website to reach out the Catholic Priests in India and to disseminate its ideas and communique to the public. It is a milestone in the growth of the CDPI. As mentioned in the Preamble of the CDPI it is a fraternal association of the Catholic Priests and I hope and pray that this website will help the priests in our nation to grow in fraternity and solidarity, which express the ministry of Our Jesus Christ and able to bring Our Lord every look and corner of our nation.

Rev. Fr. Raymond Joseph
Executive Secretary, CDPI
It gives me an immense joy to serve the CCBI Commission for VSCR as its Executive Secretary. Of course, it is indeed a great challenge for me; but, with your goodwill and cooperation, I am confident that I will be able to fulfill my responsibility with utmost care, devotion and dedication. At this 13th National Council Meeting held in Nagpur, we are happy to launch our new Website with many modifications that would make our CDPI Website more beneficial, interactive and relevant.
