Ongoing Projects

For the Reconstruction of the Cathedral Church

The present Church building does not have enough space for the faithful to participate in the Holy Eucharistic Celebration meaningfully. On Sundays though we have four masses,  very many people are standing outside due to the lack of space. Thousands of people attend to this church on a regular basis from various walks of life. So we are planning for the reconstruction of the present cathedral church. We expect generous donations from all those who can support this noble endeavour of the reconstruction.
