DIALOGUE AND ECUMENISM

The Dialogue and Ecumenism Commission has been formulated to strengthen the harmony of our society at large. It believes that such a harmony can only be attained through constant dialogues between the divergent groups, communities and individuals. The uniqueness of every person, faith and communities must be appreciated to strengthen the unity of the society. It keeps up the fatherhood of God and brotherhood of Man.

We believe that there is an element of Goodness innate in every human being irrespective of caste, creed, language, colour etc.. This innate goodness in our heart is being celebrated when we come together irrespective of caste and religion in any occasion of common festivals and this  flourishment of goodness  brings a new culture in the society which we want to establish  in our country that is the culture of Love,Truth, Justice Tollerance and Eqality. We understand that all these are Gospel values.

Vision: 

The vision is to reach the inner and outer spheres of man and nature, to establish a vibrant and harmonious society. The heterogeneity of man and nature has to be admitted and appreciated. But that should never be a hindrance to establish a link between one and many because there is heaven in you and me.

Mission

It is intended to adopt practical steps to know and be known by one and all in a pluralistic society like ours. The intention is to find out a common ground to share our experiences as one of the means to strenghthen, socio-cultural and religious fabric of our society and to explore the further possibilities to make our space more livable.

Modus Operandi

We think dialogue is the best method to establish a healthy link between one individual and other individual in society; man and God, man and nature. The dialogue is not intended to get mastery over the other or to celebrate victory over the rest, but to understand each other to actualize potentialities of every individual at macro and micro level with a positive outlook.

Aims and Objectives 

To propagate the Love of Christ which includes everyone and establish the Fatherhood of God and Brotherhood of man.

To promote principles of various religions of the world to propagate religious harmony and fraternity.

To strive to promote communal Harmony and world peace.

To share among all the segments of the society the knowledge of various religious traditions.

To prevent Religion from becoming an instrument of oppression , explotation and injustice and to strive for the economic and social uplift of the downtrodden.
