President's Message




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, especially in view of the upcoming Synod on Famiilies to be held in Rome in October, 2015, so that they can be better equipped to deal with these pastoral challenges in their respective dioceses.

While commending the National Council meeting of the CDPI to the intercession of Mary, Star of the New Evangelisation, I gladly invoke God's choicest blessings on all those gathered. Have a successful meeting!
