PIHD New Committee Members for 2010-2012

Keynote Address (by Fr. George Packiasamy):

John 10:10 - "I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full." We as Christians should get involved to help with care and concern for one another. We should give value, respect and dignity to our fellow human beings, especially to the poor, marginalised, weak, disadvantaged, etc.

Let us work together with the AOHD for better understanding and growth in the area of Human Development, as well as the development of ALL persons. We need to work together in our BECs and parish community in order to promote social awareness, justice and peace.

Let our vision & mission be rooted in the Gospel Message and grow in our faith as individuals & as community.

We thank Charles Leon De Lima for untiring service for the past five years and we welcome Steven Dionis, the new chairperson.
