Over 200 participants in the IDC Study Conference in Lourdes coming from all continents and from 30 nations took inspiration from the site and its spirituality as well as from the conference topic “Salvation and Healing in a Diaconal Church”
Delegates of IDC visited a social community centre in the slums of Mumbai.
Women religious, social workers and deacons work together in the social stations for the good of the inhabitants. In one of the centres, women earn the livelihood of their families working as seamstresses. Now they are also making stoles for deacons.
