At the 94th Executive Committee Meeting in Bengaluru, the Conference of Catholic Bishops of India (CCBI) unveiled commemorative souvenirs for Jubilee 2025, increasing anticipation for the event.

On May 7, Cardinal Filipe Neri Ferrão, President of the CCBI, addressed the gathering, highlighting the significance of these mementos in heralding the preparations and celebrations for Jubilee 2025.

In his felicitation address, Cardinal Ferrão said, “These souvenirs act as reminders for Jubilee 2025 preparations and celebrations, that together as pilgrims of hope we continue walking the synodal journey in our local churches and at the Episcopal Conference, searching for the least and the lost of society.”

Cardinal Oswald Gracias of Bombay, Cardinal Anthony Poola of Hyderabad, Archbishop George Antonysamy of Madras-Mylapore, Archbishop Anil Couto of Delhi, Archbishop Antony Pappusamy of Madurai, Father Stephen Alathara, Director of Communio, and Father Vignan Das Gangula, Associate Director of Communio, received the first souvenirs with enthusiasm.

Father Yesu Karunanidhi led the National Facilitating Team for the Jubilee 2025 in preparing the souvenirs, which included mugs and keychains.

The attendees received the souvenirs with enthusiasm, symbolizing the upcoming jubilee and the unity and spirit of communion within the Catholic community in India.

Furthermore, Communio's generous support, which facilitated the realization of this initiative by fostering communion and solidarity within the Catholic Church, made the endeavor possible.

The unveiling marks an important milestone in the lead-up to Jubilee 2025, a significant event both for the Church Universal and the Catholic Church in India. These commemorative items serve as keepsakes, a tangible reminder of the ongoing preparations and the spirit of collaboration within the CCBI.
