Greetings from NCCI- Dalit and Tribal/ Adivasi Concerns!
We are happy to inform you that this year Dalit Liberation Sunday will be observed on 10 November 2019 all over India by the Member Churches/ Institutions/ Parishes of the National Council of Churches in India and Catholic Bishop’s Conference of India. The theme for this year’s DLS is Resist Caste: “If one suffers all suffer together” (1 Corinthians 12: 26). Let us as local congregation observe this DLS-2019 in all sincerity and truthfulness to our calling as Christians and sensitize people to overcome all forms of discriminatory practices of caste across India and initiate uncompromising actions to eradicate such practices within the Christian community.
We are sending you some prayers and affirmations to be included into your worship service. Attached herewith please find pdf. files of the worship order and poster of DLS-2019 which you may circulate among your pastors, lay leaders and department heads.
Looking forward to receiving your cooperation in observing Dalit Liberation Sunday on November 10, 2019.
Thanking you in anticipation,
Dalit and Tribal/ adivasi Concerns
