Cardijn Community International (CCI) congratulates Bishop Oswald Lewis on his reappointment as the Chairperson of the Labour Commission, CBCI.
CCI hopes that Bishop Oswald Lewis would strive to bring together all the movements in the Church in India working towards development and well being of the workers in India and form a common platform for formation and action.
In particular, the Cardijn movements like YCW, CWM and CCI need more support and encouragement from the Church if the spirit and decisions of Vatican II have to be put into practice.
Incidentally, CCI is commemorating the 50th anniversary of Vatican II with various activities and studies on the social teachings of the Church and lay participation.
CCI-India is hosting the international conference on 'Vatican 2+50: A Cardijn Perspective' from the 5th to 8th December 2015 at Joe Beach Conference Centre, Mamallapuram, near Chennai.
We are fortunate to have Bishop Oswald Lewis who is supportive of Cardijn movements heading the CBCI Labour Commission.
We do hope that Bishop Oswald Lewis will extend his total support to CCI in our efforts to promote Cardijn's spirituality, vision and SEE JUDGE ACT methodology.
CCI once again wishes Bishop Oswald Lewis all the very best in his stewardship of the Labour Commission for another term and hope to see him participate actively
at the 2015 International Conference.
