Kohima, May 19 (EMN):
The Nagaland Catholic laity charity corpus (NCLCC), a charity programme, was officially launched by the bishop of Kohima diocese Rev. Dr. James Thoppil through Zoom at Bishop’s House, Mary Help of Christians Cathedral on Wednesday in Kohima.

Catholic association of Nagaland (CAN) expressed happiness that by living the word “Laity in service,” the Catholic laity under the aegis CAN could install NCLCC.

The association has thanked the Almighty “for bestowing His mercies” upon them to undertake the “mission,” while acknowledging Christ even in the poorest. It expressed joy in working for the good of every person.

As per the spelled out priorities, Can hoped to “nurture lives with dignity,” help one another in times of temporal needs especially in times of sickness and pain, while encouraging the growth of Christian charity.

Through the initiative, the association also hoped to stand in solidarity with each other as fellow human persons, to uplift the less abled especially the socially oppressed and suppressed and economically exploited through the programme and to work with everyone for the common good.

“We are one human family and must stand side by side with each other, especially those living in poverty, in sickness or in any kind of need,” CAN stated.

CAN also believed that Christian life must be translated to action through caring and sharing as “Christian human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society,” and that as one human family, one must stand side by side with each other, especially those living in poverty, in sickness or in any kind of need.
