Provincial's Message

The coming year 2025 is a double Jubilee year for all of us – the members of the Dumka-Raiganj province, the Church in the three dioceses of Dumka, Raiganj and Purnea, all our partners in mission and our well-wishers. The Holy Father has declared 2025 as an Ordinary Year of Jubilee with the theme, ‘Pilgrims of Hope’. Additionally, for us, we joyfully celebrate the Centenary of our Santal Mission with the theme ‘Recall with affection, Relish with gratitude and respond with generosity’ to the Lord who has blessed us abundantly in the past ten decades.

100 years ago, a tiny seed was planted at Majlispur, nourished and nurtured with love and dedication by our pioneers. Today its stands firm, majestic and tall – as the Santal Church – testimony of God’s goodness and kindness, protection and guidance. We recall with gratitude the pioneers led by Fr. Antony Debono and other Maltese and Sicilian missionaries who laboured in this vineyard called Santal Mission.
