At the Catholic Enquiry Centre (CEC). We experience the joy of reaching out to hundreds of people, many belonging to other faiths, to spread the great message of God’s love for us, His children.


Dear Child of God, I request you to lift your hearts to God and join me as I pray: Loving Father, pour out your abundant LOVE into the hearts of the reader and the hearers through the Holy Spirit, whom you have given as your gift to us. Dear Holy Spirit, fill them with divine wisdom to know and love you. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.

A Special Sunday for CEC

9th February 2014 was a memorable Sunday for the Archdiocesan Catholic Enquiry Centre as they celebrated a special CEC day at the beautiful St. Peter’s Church, Rustumbagh, Bangalore. The Church was elegantly decorated with CEC posters. A houseful of worshippers was eagerly looking at the group wearing CEC badges inside the Church.

Rev. Fr. J. Arokianathan, who is the Parish Priest of the Church as well as the Spiritual Director of CEC, celebrated the Holy Eucharist. Sr. Clare, Directress of CEC made some introductory remarks about the CEC Mission in the Archdiocese of Bangalore.

As soon as the Mass was over, a special function was held in the Church Auditorium with Rev Fr. J. Arokianathan in the chair. The program commenced with the singing of hymns and attractive dances by Sunday school students. Sr. Clare, in her address, narrated the history and activities of CEC. She appealed to the faithful to come and see the CEC office at the Infant Jesus Shrine and to become partners in the evangelisation work.

Short clips were shown highlighting the CEC activities. A skit depicted how the co-workers work in comforting and counselling non-Christians who are in trouble, pain and trauma. CEC treats such seekers with utmost respect and offer them peace from our Lord Jesus Christ.
Later Mrs. Mariam Nishath spoke about her own conversion to Christianity after an inner call from the Lord. She quoted the words from the Bible and explained the reason for her baptism in the Catholic Church, some two and half years back. Her testimony in an emotionally choked voice inspired the entire gathering. It is worth mentioning here that nearly one hundred non-Christians received baptism in one year on account of CEC mission in Bangalore.
In his concluding remarks, Rev Fr. J. Arokianathan showered praises on CEC workers specially Sr. Clare, for their dedicated services.

Mrs. Dorothy Miranda assisted by Ahana Chandran anchored the session. The program ended with an agape Lunch.
