On 08 September 2019, CRS was greatly honoured by a visit from the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, who was in Kolkata during a tour of India.
After giving a message during the Sunday service at St Paul’s Cathedral, the Archbishop and his wife, Caroline, toured the cathedral grounds where the educational and social service activities of the diocese were on show.
It was a great privilege for the CRS Director, Rig David, to be personally introduced to the Archbishop and his wife.
It was a wonderful opportunity to explain the work of CRS and Nari Dana. He presented them with stoles embroidered by women from Nari Dana.
The Archbishop also blessed the new Nari Dana sales outlet, recently created in Bishop’s House.
