Mirpurkhas, Pakistan: Opening Seminary for Tribals

The recent opening of a minor seminary in Pakistan’s Hyderabad Catholic Diocese is expected to address a shortage of priests in the region due to a lack of youth with a deep Christian formation.

Archbishop Christophe Zakhia El-Kassis, Apostolic Nuncio to Pakistan, along with Bishop Samson Shukardin of Hyderabad, concelebrated the thanksgiving Mass and blessed the new building equipped with a library and computer room at Mirpurkhas in Sindh province on Aug. 15.

Fifteen seminarians, including five from Parkari, Kachhi, and Kohli communities, as well as the nomadic Bheel tribes from rural Sindh, have been enrolled as the first batch.
