Though a small Diocese, Diocese of Varanasi is in a significant way a picture of Mother India. The very name of this Holy City conjures up the apex of the spirit's endeavour in Hinduism. Sarnath reminds us of Dharma Chakra Pravartana of the Buddha. The two districts, in the west and to the east, Jaunpur and Ghazipur, evoke a pair of twin and refined kingdoms of the Muslim era. The history of the diocese remembers with gratefulness the outcome of the Capuchin missionary endeavour to Tibet in the 1700's, as an epic in the history of the Church.
The value of intellectual humility
We must motivate students to attend summer school of music and dance, BA in Nav Sadhana Kalakendra, GNM in St. Mary’s Varanasi and Fatima, Mau. Some guidance and preparation for entrance test will certainly help them.
The Priestly Ordination of our Deacons Andrew Masih, Balaswamy, Brayn Barel, Manoj Kispota and Michael Rajan, will be held on April 20, 2017 at 9.30 a.m. at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Varanasi. Your prayers and spiritual support for the deacons are solicited. All are invited for the ceremony.
Our Clergy Recollection will be on 05th and 06th (Wednesday and Thursday) April 2017 beginning at 09.30 am on 5th. The Chrism Mass will be at 5.30 p.m. on 05th April. Kindly bring your holy oil vessels in well-cleansed condition for receiving the new oils.
I earnestly request all to plan in advance the Summer Camp, paying attention to the syllabus, the team of Fathers, Sisters, Teachers, Catechists, etc. Including some creative activities and teaching aids will make the programme enjoyable for boys and girls. Summer camp must be seen as common concern of the parish and should get due priority over personal interests.
