The week-long bi-annual assembly is expected to bring together all the Bishops of India at the Alphonsian Pastoral Institute, Arunapuram.

The plenary assembly, held every two years on a particular theme, reviews the situation and assesses the progress of the Church in India. “Renewed Church for a Renewed Society” – Responding to the Call of Vatican II,” is the theme of the 2014 plenary assembly.
