Some of the pertinent issues discussed by the Council at its monthly meetings included: organising a forum to hear the views of the advocates of the legalisation of cannabis; follow up on the appointments of Robert Moumou on the Covid Platinum Committee and Mrs Gendron on the SBC board; the use of the land allotted to Sifco on Perseverance for a multi-faith building in consultation with the architect; the National Day celebrations; the interfaith children’s programmes proposed by NCC and changes to the Registration of Associations Act.

Sifco wishes all the people of Seychelles good health, prosperity and above all, offer prayers for peace and unity to prevail in our unique country, blessed with a beautiful landscape, clean air and a friendly population of blended multi-racial origins.

The Council will continue to offer spiritual guidance and interact with both government and NGOs for both our material and spiritual progress in a fast changing world.
