Bangalore Archdiocese to host CBCI-GBM

CBCI General Body Meeting to be held in Bangalore from 8th to 15th February 2006

The Catholic Bishops' Conference of India (CBCI) will be holding its General Body Meeting (GBM) in Bangalore from 8th to 15th February, 2006. The theme of the GBM is "The Catholic Church's Concern for the Education of the Marginalized". On 12th February, at 4.00 p.m. there will be a Public Mass and Civic Reception on St.Joseph's Indian High School grounds, Bangalore, which will be attended by over 155 Bishops and Cardinals of India, the Papal Nuncio from Delhi, the Papal Delegate for Education from Rome, the Governor, the Chief Minister and Education Minister of Karnataka.

The Archdiocese of Bangalore which is hosting the meeting for the first time in Bangalore will incur an expenditure of approximately 95 lakhs. But considering the privilege and honour the event confers on our beloved Archdiocese, the expenditure is worth incurring. You are invited to participate in the Public Meeting and Civic Reception and also contribute generously for the success of this event.

Your generous contributions by crossed Cheque/Draft drawn in favour of "Archdiocese of Bangalore - CBCI 2006" and may be sent to :

Mr. Henry J. Pinto, (Member of the Public Mass & Civic Reception Committee)
