Bishop's  Message

EASTER MESSAGE 2015
The Empty Tomb, Women and Bodily Resurrection

But by far the largest crowd has visited, and continue to do so, a tomb which is empty the empty tomb of Jesus! And it has been empty for nearly two thousand years! And it had been empty from the beginning! It would have been impossible for the faith in the Resurrection to survive with a tomb still containing the body of Jesus.

History of the Diocese

The Present Ecclesiastical territory of Balasore, Comprising the 4 civil Districts : Bhadrak, Balasore, Mayurbhanj and Keonjhar of Orissa State, was under the Archdiocese of Calcutta until 1968.Though the origin of Christianity in this part of North East Orissa can be traced back to 1514 with a Portuguese settlement in Pippilli, Balasore got a resident Priest in the person of Fr. Sapport S.J. only in 1865. He had built a beautiful church (Lal Girja) in Balasore and had started a Foundling Home, which later was looked after by the Daughters of the Cross (DC). Fr Sapport S.J. was said to be the Pioneer Missionary of Balasore. In 1915, the Daughters of St. Joseph of Chembery had arrived and opened a Convent and a School in Balasore which was functioning until 1938.  Read More....
