KCA Officials meet Bishop Joseph Kalathiparambil from Vatican

On Thursday, 27th  September 2012; Officials of Kerala Catholic Association of the UK (KCA) met Bishop Joseph Kalathiparambil (Secretary of The Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerants) at Allen Hall, Seminary of the Diocese of Westminster, London.  Fr Johnson Alexander, the Roman Catholic Chaplain (Latin Rite) for the Kerala Community in the UK was also present for the meeting.

 

The meeting commenced with Bishop Joseph speaking of his role as the Secretary of The Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerants and details of his visit to the UK. The Pontifical Council for the Pastoral Care of Migrants and Itinerant People brings the pastoral concern of the Church to bear on the special needs of those who have been forced to leave their native land or who do not have one.  There was a discussion on the issues surrounding migrant workers around the world.
