The community of Couples for Christ in Bengal, organized their first ever Christian Life Seminar on 18th July 2015; the theme of which was “I am the way, the truth and the life!” The program culminated on 30th April 2016 with the members committing to continue their walk with God and to serve in the community of Couples for Christ.
As Matthew 22:14 rightly says “Many are called but few are chosen“. The CLS which began with 12 couples, ended with only 3 and 1 handmaid whom the Lord had personally handpicked.
Amidst a ceremonious Eucharistic celebration, the members took their commitment, thanking God for drawing them closer to Him and for choosing them to serve Him. Fr. John Babu Halder, CSSR, who is the backbone of CFCI- Kolkata, celebrated Holy Mass and in his short homily explained very beautifully, the need for sharing, caring and bearing in the family. The parish priest, Fr.Tapan Stephen Khan was also very supportive and encouraged us to continue the good work of bringing Christ into more families; particularly in the light of the increasing number of separations and divorces that are tearing families apart.
We pray that God may empower us to carry out His mission and that we may have many more families in Bengal, ablaze with the fire of His love.
