Asal, Catholic Church

The initial Mission venture faced various ups and downs. Fathers began pastoral and social outreach programs from Himmatnagar. The search for land led to Asal. However due to various problems they could not establish themselves there. Meanwhile they shifted base in a rented Bungalow at Sodhpur and Pilar Sisters joined them soon in ministering to the people. The Society of Pilar has bought another piece of land at Khiloda from where they do pastoral and social apostolate. The Mission is catering to three mass centres spread over six villages and has social outreach programmes in 15 villages. Since the end of June 2013, the Pilar Fathers have begun a preprimary school. There are 135 members in the Catholic community.
