About Us

Navchetana, the Madhya Pradesh Regional Communication Centre, Bhopal, an apostolate of the CMI St. Paul Province, Bhopal, was established in 1990 at the request of the Bishops Council of Madhya Pradesh to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ through performing arts and media productions. It promotes all classical and folk arts especially of central India. Navchetana envisages a society animated and integrated by the age old noble values of Indian culture and tradition.

Navchetana is a Registered Society (Reg.No. 952/92) under the Madhya Pradesh Societies Registration Act 1973. Our Music and dance training programmes are accredited by Prayag Sangeet Samiti, Allahabad. The Centre offers various academic courses in classical music (vocal & instrumental), dance (Bharatnatyam & Kathak) and theatre. The media productions include audio and video programmes on a variety of themes like National integration, religion, value education, social awareness, education, art and culture.

Our street play unit has staged shows all over M.P. and C.G. with various themes on social awareness. Navchetana’s training team tours villages and towns and train children and adults in street play and equip them with fundamentals of theatrics. These street play groups then perform the plays in schools, village squares and city streets with appreciable success.

Media Productions are a major work of Navchetana. Eighteen video cassettes and CDs and thirty audio cassettes and CDs on devotional songs have been brought out by Navchetana and most of them have been telecast by Doordarshan and other National channels. Navchetana has also produced a number of programmes for exclusive stage shows on request. Our ballets and mega shows have toured extensively in the state and the metros of India and have won wide acclamation.


Homilies for Sundays and weekdays of the liturgical calendar of every cycle are regularly posted on our website www.navchetana.com on every Thursday of the forthcoming week. These weekly homilies are the collective contributions of many Bishops, Priests and Deacons who are experts in the ministry of preaching and teaching the Word of God. Hence one can expect richness, depth and variety and of course a lot more scope for your own ingenuity and rhetoric through these homilies. We hope the clergy and the faithful will richly benefit from these homilies.
