UAC Regional Congress – Tamil Nadu

The Regional UAC Congress in Tamil Nadu was organized on September 20 & 21, 2012 at PILLAR, Madurai, Tamil Nadu. The theme of the congress was Pallotti: UAC and its Relevance. There were 70 participants gathered for the congress from all over Tamil Nadu. The participants were: Pallottine priests, Diocesan priests, Pallottine Missionary Sisters, representatives from other religious congregations and lay people from Pallottine and Diocesan parishes. The regional congress was declared open and the inaugural address was delivered by Very Rev. Fr. Pedro Camilo Simoes SAC, the Provincial of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Province, Bangalore. During these two days there were input sessions, presentations and discussions on Pallotti and UAC. It was a new experience of coming together and reflecting on the importance of the charism of our founder and UAC. The congress was new venture in Tamil Nadu and it gave a platform to begin UAC at the grassroots level especially in parishes and institutes. The regional congress after its spiritual, intellectual and social awakening calls for our initiatives, cooperation and union.
