Proposal to Raise Vishakapatnam Comitium to Regia (India)
March 2017

PROPOSAL TO RAISE VISHAKAPATNAM COMITIUM TO REGIA (INDIA)
A proposal was put forward to elevate Vishakapatnam Comitium to Regia status. The Regia would govern the Legion in its own Archdioceses as well as in the Dioceses of Eluru, Guntur, Nellore, Srikakulam and Vijayawada. All councils were consulted and gave agreement.
The Regia will comprise 20 directly affiliated praesida, 6 directly affiliated Curiae, 2 Comitia, 16 Curiae and 37 distant praesidia. The aim is to form more Curiae and Comitia and to attach distant praesidia to councils more adjacent to them or form some of them into Curiae. Most of the existing councils have too many praesidia currently attached. Ecclesiastical permission has been given by the Archbishop of Vishakapatnam.
The submission was proposed and seconded and the Concilium body gave its approval

Quote of the Day
The Christian life is not a collection of rules and formulas which are imposed on the individual, but the message about a person – Jesus Christ – who comes out to meet us in our sinfulness - as did the Father of the prodigal son – filled with love, compassion and forgiveness.
