The Catholic Bishops’ Conference in India (ccbi ) has inaugurated the new Catholic Connect mobile application, a comprehensive platform offering the faithful in India access to spiritual resources, relevant news and a range of Catholic life services, including health insurance, education, jobs and emergency assistance.

The app was officially launched during the Plenary Assembly at St John’s National Academy of Health Sciences in Bangalore on Tuesday, 30 January, by Cardinal Filipe Neri Ferrão, ccbi President; Archbishop of Bombay, Cardinal Oswald Gracias; Archbishop of Hyderabad, Cardinal Anthony Poola; and other members of the Conference.

The Catholic Connect app stands as a transformative tool that seamlessly integrates technology with faith, promising to bring about positive changes within the Catholic community. By addressing various needs and fostering collaboration, this app has the potential to strengthen a sense of community, facilitate communication and enhance the overall experience for users both in India and worldwide.

The app aims to keep users informed about local developments throughout India, regardless of their geographical location. With sections for information, events, notifications, announcements and obituaries, app users will find it easier to connect with their respective parishes and dioceses.
