Diocese of Miao Celebrates 10 Years
The year 2016 is doubly special for the Diocese of Miao. It celebrates the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy with the Universal Church and it also celebrates 10 years as a Diocese this year.
To mark this important event of the Diocese of Miao, a formal inauguration ceremony was held at Christ the Light Shrine, Miao, on 26 February 2016. Bishop George, who celebrated his 10th Episcopal Ordination Anniversary on this day, thanked God for all that has been done. “We can see the hand of God in everything”, he said. Having had a humble beginning 10 years ago on this day, humanly speaking it was not possible to imagine what we have done. The number of schools, hostels, parishes, convents, health centres, college, above all the number of Catholics are all a testimony to the great blessings of God.” he said inaugurating the event.
He thanked all for the sacrifices ‘each of you have made’ and reminded everyone that it is only a baby-step. “Going forth is our mandate given by Christ himself”, he said.
The Diocese of Miao will celebrate its 10th Anniversary with special thrust on the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy.
