Diocese of Poona
Dear Father, Brother and Sister,
The attacks on Christians  are on the increase every day, which is of grave concern to the Christians and all minorities in our country. A series of attacks on churches, and church personnel has prompted us to worry about a deliberate campaign of hate.
All  Christians along with the other minorities have decided to hold a Silent Peace March onTuesday 24th March 2015, starting from St. Felix High School, Boat Club Road  to Pune Council Hall, to highlight the need of the  hour  and to urge  the government  and the police to protect the minorities, their rights, their  religious places and institutions.
It is very important that every concerned individual join this Peace March to show our solidarity to the victims of hate and violence and demand justice. I urge you and all the members of your community, parish, institution and school to join the protest march, which will begin at 9.00 am sharp from  St. Felix High School, Boat Club Road and end at 11.00am  at  Pune Council Hall.  Therefore   kindly be present at 8.30 am at the venue.
Parish priests are requested to make an appeal to every parishioner to join this Peace March, by making the following announcement at all Masses on Saturday 21st March and Sunday 22nd March 2015, and also request Parish Pastoral Council and SCC area leaders to mobilize the faithful in their respective neighbourhoods.  The school Principals   are requested to urge the teachers and parents of the students, to join this Peace March.
Announcement in Churches:
“The attacks on Christian Churches are on the increase every day in our country, which is a matter of great concern to us.
