Welcome, Diocese of Bareilly situated in the three districts of Uttar Pradesh state and six districts of Uttarakhand State. On behalf of all the priests, men and women religious, Catechists and lay faithful I extend a hearty welcome to you.
Ours is an active and vibrant diocese marked by missionary enthusiasm. Following the inspiring and relentless pioneering work of Capuchin missionaries of Tibet-Hindustan Mission, this tiny diocese is labouring for the spread of the faith and the progress of the Catholic Church in the virgin and uncharted territories of the Himalayan Mountains.
Out of a total population of 8898990, we are today a small drop of 6000 Catholics scattered all over in 9 civil districts proclaiming and living the Good News. Through the available resources the diocese is actively engaged in reaching out to the people of all groups and religious thereby mounding communities, society and cultures with a deep and incisive influence of the Gospel values. →more
