UAC - Forming Apostles for the Church and the World
An International Online Conference was held on 21 November 2020 on the theme: UAC - Forming Apostles for the Church and the World. The Conference began with a short welcome note by Rev. Fr. 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. About 85 members of the Union: priests, sisters and lay people, from all the continents participated in the Conference. It was a pleasant and very enriching occasion for the whole Pallottine Family, specially to be together though through virtual means. Ms. Donatella Acerbi, the President of the Union along with many other participants thanked Fr. Frank for his well-prepared presentation.
