Respected Ecumenical Leaders,
Greetings from NCCI- Dalit and Tribal/ Adivasi Concerns!
The theme for this year’s Tribal and Adivasi Sunday is “Leaving No One Behind.. (1 Cor. 10:24)” and we have prepared a special Order of Worship for the day. You may please take the freedom to use the entire worship order and translate it in your vernacular language or adapt parts of it. We sincerely hope that the observance of this special NCCI Tribal and Adivasi Sunday will be an enriching one in our faith affirmation and commitment and for widening the horizon of our ecumenical journey.
Over the years Tribal and Adivasi Sunday has been celebrated in many parts of our country in sensitizing the local congregation on Tribal and Adivasi Concerns. Thanks to the enormous support we have received from across the churches, dioceses, parishes and institutions in celebrating this special Sunday. This year also we are inviting you to celebrate Tribal and Adivasi Sunday on 8th August in your churches/local parishes/institutions adhering to the Covid-19 protocols of restrictions on physical gathering.
Let us join to celebrate Tribal and Adivasi Sunday on 8th August 2021.
Thanking you in anticipation.
