As part of CNI’s year-long Golden Jubilee celebrations, Lucknow Diocese organised a Stewardship seminar with Presbyters, Principals and special guests from Allahabad as attendees. Bishop Peter Baldey gave the opening prayer, and shared a message on Unity, Witness and Service.
He praised the Stewardship Ministry for kicking off the 50-year celebrations through this seminar, and the legal advisor of the Diocese Mr. B. P. Tiwari also shared the vision of the Synod for the celebrations and future programs. The Rev Dr Mrs. Vinita Eusebius spoke about the concept of Stewardship, emphasising proper care of the resources God has entrusted to them.
The Jabalpur Diocese’s Golden Jubilee celebrations last December combined both Thanksgiving and Holy Communion Services, where they remembered the birth of their Diocese. A Diocesan Consultative Committee was appointed by the inaugural committee of CNI, tasked to carve out a new diocese in the Mahakoshal and Chhattisgarh area.
