En septembre 2009, la Fondation Paul Poupard a créé une chaire pour le dialogue interreligieux, en Inde, au sein du Collège St Andrews : extraits.
"19 September 2009 was a red letter day for us, for we at St. Andrew’s College organized an International Symposium on Religions and Cultures for Peace and Harmony. This was the first major function held after the establishment of the “Cardinal Paul Poupard Foundation Chair for Inter – Religious and Inter – Cultural Dialogue” early this year on 30 January 2009.
The College was beautifully attired with red carpets and flowers to host the most prestigious event of the year. The International Symposium aimed at enlightening the darkness of prejudice with an objective to foster peace and harmony incorporating various religious perspectives.
A beautiful prayer dance by the students of the college set the tone for the events which were about to unfold. After lighting the lamp the dignitaries took their seats on stage.
The esteemed resource persons for this event were His Eminence Cardinal Oswald Gracias, His Eminence Cardinal Paul Poupard, Mr. Mahesh Bhatt, Justice H. Suresh, and Shri. Ashraf Ahmed Shaikh, Swami Nikileshwaran and His Grace, Archbishop Felix Machado.
Msgr. Nereus Rodrigues in his welcome speech articulated the need to establish the “Cardinal Paul Poupard Foundation Chair for Inter – Religious and Inter – Cultural Dialogue”.
