Reconciliation & Legal Aid Cell

posted by Neil D'Souza   [ updated ]

Catholic Lawyers Guild Mumbai (CLGM) inaugurated its third RELACE (Reconciliation and Legal Aid Cell) at St Anne’s High School, Borivli West, on April 22, 2017. 

The inauguration began with the traditional lighting of the lamp by Sr Carmel, Superior of St Anne’s, followed by the RELACE Team. There was scripture reading and reflection on the theme of wisdom, led by Sr Sagayamary. 

The Guild appreciated Sr Carmel’s support and encouragement and thanked her for providing the premises for RELACE. 

The President of the Guild, Walter Paul Lewis, welcomed all the members and guests and gave a brief introduction of CLGM and RELACE. He then introduced the Team/Panel of about 16 Advocates who have volunteered to be part of RELACE at St Anne’s High School, Borivli West. 

RELACE is for those community members who do not want or wish to take the matter/dispute to the court. RELACE will focus on the Reconciliation process, which is part of our Catholic faith to find out the best solution in resolving the issues/problems by hearing ALL the parties in the dispute. Apart from the above, RELACE will provide FREE Legal Aid, i.e. Advice and Guidance. 

Community members who need legal advice can avail of these services between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. on the second and fourth Saturday of every month. They can gather at the staff room on the ground floor, and will be advised on their individual problems, without any fees being charged. This advice is given gratis if these community members do not wish to enter into an adversarial court battle which is both time-consuming and expensive. 

This was followed by a Q & A session. A Vote of thanks was given by Raphael D’souza. 

Inviting all Catholic Lawyers in the Archdiocese of Bombay to register themselves as members of the Guild. For further information, log on to our website http://clgm.olcmbom.org/

HPT Outreach to Mumbai Police

posted by Neil D'Souza   [ updated ]

45 male and female police personnel under the leadership of Mr Jadhav, Senior Police Inspector of Parksite/Vikhroli area, attended ‘Measures for Healthy Living’ - an educational session on April 22, 2017 at St Joseph Church Hall, Vikhroli. This was the first time that the Health Promotion Trust (HPT) of the Archdiocese of Bombay reached out to the police community. 

A combination of job-related stressors and exhausting work schedules cause many police personnel to neglect their health and overlook preventive healthcare, resulting in chronic diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, acidity, ulcers, heart disease and related disorders. In his welcome address, Fr Rocky Banz, HPT Director,praised the police for dedicating their lives to protecting the urban and rural communities of Mumbai. He encouraged them to focus on simple preventive strategies to improve the quality of their health. Ms Kalpana Dabre and Ms Sharon Rodrigues conducted the rest of the session in Marathi. The attendees were very appreciative of the programme, and received copies of the Measures for Healthy Living handbook. The Health Promotion Trust will conduct follow-up sessions with the police personnel on topics such as laughter therapy, yoga and Pranayama, acupressure and dietary techniques.
