Bishop's  Message

This circular comes to you in the context of the celebration of the feasts of two most beloved saints of the Church – St. Therese of Lisieux (the ‘Little Flower’) and St. Francis of Assisi (the ‘Poor One’).

The Little Flower, who never left the four walls of her convent and yet is considered the Patroness of the Missions, is a great model for each one of us. She supported the missionaries in their life and work of evangelization by means of her prayers and penance. Imitating her we could also offer our support and encouragement to those of us engaged in one good activity or another for the good of the Mission, especially those activities we ourselves are not capable of or are not directly engaged in. Besides, more than ever, all of us in our mission need her intercession these days. Let us make ourselves worthy of it.  Read More....

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....
