The Sillon and the YCW

The 25 August 2010 marks two significant historical dates for the Cardijn movements.

It is the centenary of the letter of Pope Pius X to the French bishops, Our Apostolic Mandate, dated 25 August 1910, which led to the sacrificial closure of the Sillon movement of Marc Sangnier.

It is also the 75th anniversary of the first international congress of the YCW held in Brussels on 25 August 1935.

CCI will join with CCI Philippines to commemorate these anniversaries on Saturday 21 August 2010.

It will be a gathering of friends from the Cardijn movements.
