Young people and animators from various dioceses of India will meet in December this year at Goa for a 3 day Conference on 'Youth 4 Change' and study the reality in India to redefine their social commitment. They will also present their expectations on the 'social commitment of the Church in India'.
The Church in India is giving emphasis for the formation of youth during the year and the CCI expects the Church to give due recognition and place for young people in Church structures.
CCI-India has come out with an extension plan to reach out to all the lay leaders trained through Cardijn movements in India and together promote Cardijn's spirituality, vision and methodology. They will soon come out with a training module on 'See-Judge-Act'.
CCI is a resource team and a development network of people trained through Cardijn movements. Its core competency is the 'Review of Life' skills.
Rt. Rev. Thomas Dabre, Bishop of Pune, who had expressed happiness at the initiatives of CCI deputed the Vicar General, Mgr. George D'Souza who presided over the programme on the 29th July to officially launch the Pune Chapter of the Cardijn Community International.
