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
All the schools in the diocese will celebrate Teachers Day on 5, September 2016. I convey my very warm wishes to every teacher engaged in the education ministry of the Diocese.
This is again a gentle reminder about the Spiritual Enrichment Programme for married couples of the parishes in Varanasi deanery from September 30 to October 2, 2016 (evening hours). Sister Ranjita SRA, Directress of Family Apostolate, has already contacted you with details. Please motivate all married couples in your parish, institution to take part in the programme and benefit from it.
Sister Kritika SRA, appointed as the Directress of MahilaSangh, succeeding Sr. Nitya SRA, will intimate to you regarding the Hartmannpur Pilgrimage, October 14-16, 2016. I request every parish priest to encourage women and young girls of your parish to participate in it. We praise the Lord for the outstanding ministry carried out by Sr. Nitya SRA and pray for her health and recovery especially during the pilgrimage.
