Jacob Nampudakam, the Rector General of the Society of the Catholic Apostolate and the Ecclesiastical Assistant of the Union of Catholic Apostolate. The Resource Person, Rev. Fr. Frank Donio, the Director of the Catholic Apostolate Centre, USA, in his presentation highlighted the primary importance of making our charism attractive by witness of our lives and drawing people to follow the ideals of St. Vincent always in service of the Church and its mission. He spoke about the seven keys to Christ-centered collaboration: Christ, Cenacle, Communion, Cooperation, Communication, Compassion and Co-responsibility. He also presented very briefly the initiatives and the endeavours undertaken by the team at the Catholic Apostolate Centre. After the presentation there was some time for questions and observations.
