Bishop’s Message


Greetings in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ !

PRAISE THE LORD! Indeed it is joyous news to learn that St. John’s Church will be launching its website for the very first time.

Welive in a globalized world and people are connected through information Technology. Thanks to the World Wide Web (internet). I think that St. John’s Church (being the first Cathedral) is not just a place of solemn worship, but is a very historically significant tourist location that tells of the early beginnings of the Church in Kolkata. There is a treasure of history and heritage that is of priceless value. Hence, the story needs to be told so that people will be blessed.

I believe today’s modern world there is no greater medium than a website to tell the story of an amazing journey of faith as well as to communicate the Good News to the World.

Well done! Congratulations.

With prayers and blessings,
