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.

To lead and guide people in the right path, the Catholic Enquiry Centre (CEC), based above Infant Jesus Shrine, carries out powerful evangelization work, under the guidance of His Grace, Most Rev. Dr. Bernard Moras and CEC Directress, Rev. Sr. C.L. Clare,dsp.

I would like to share my experience in evangelization at St. Mary’s Basilica in 2011, during the festive season of Mother Mary’s birthday.

With the constant support of Sr. Clare, we set up a stall in the Church premises, from 29th August to 8th September. Thousands of people came to find out all about Jesus and the work CEC does. We Provided Bible study material and free Bible Correspondence Courses in English, Tamil and Kannada, to people of other faiths. Almost hundred ‘Enquirers’ enrolled for the Courses.

I would like to thank Sr.Clare for giving me this opportunity to speak about the goodness of our Lord. The more I speak about Him, the more I am drawn towards His mercy and goodness.

Indeed, I feel very blessed to be a part of CEC and look forward to many more such wonderful experiences.
