Tamil Seminar


Training of Lay Leaders in the Church has been an important aspect of the mission of NBCLC from its very inception. Training Programmes for Lay Leadership are conducted in various vernacular languages.

The National Seminar for Lay Leaders in Tamil was conducted from 10th to 16th of January 2019. It is significant to note that programme was animated by Lay leaders, most of whom have been trained by Fr. Amolarpavdas the Founder, Director of NBCLC.

Over the past fifty three years, these lay leaders have been regularly conducting two programmes every year. They invited Fr. Sagaya John the Director of NBCLC, Fr. S.T. Selvaraj and Swami A. Louis of Anjali Ashram to conduct a few of the sessions. A vast array of topics were discussed during the seminar, social analysis, Church History, Teachings of the VAT II Inter Faith Dialogue, Challenges faced in the family, Church & Society were some of the themes, of the input sessions.

Leadership qualities role of the Laity in the Church and their spirituality, inculturation, significance of different parts of the Liturgy were some of the other topics that were dealt during the seminar. Groups dynamics and participatory approach of the programme, helped the participants to imbibe the insight offered to them. The participants were led to deepen their spirituality through Yoga, Meditation and Marian Devotion.

The lectures brought increasing vigour to the Participants' life of faith and served to motivate them to adopt their faith life according to the needs of the time.
