Like St. Joseph, Jugen as a lad, once dreamed to welcome Jesus in his heart. In the year of St. Joseph his long cherished dream has now been fulfilled. The entire village welcomed Jesus with ‘tears of joy’, upon reception of Sacraments.

In 2009, Oblates undertook St. Paul’s Parish, an indigenous Parish, with only 9 villages. Thanks to the robust evangelization of the Oblates among Santal, Uraon, and Pahari communities, today the parish serves 33 villages. Several other small villages are also following the course of catechumenate. Every year one or two indigenous villages become Catholics. The farthest village is 35 kilometers away from the centre.

Since there are no constructed churches in most of these villages, the Oblates often use the house of the village leader for Eucharistic Celebration and prayer services. Villagers dream to have a small village church of their own for worship. They trust in God’s Providence.
