Background of the Mission

The mission of Christ is through His providence that we are able to open a new community after a progression of two long years persuaded by our provincial council. Many individuals are intertwined in triumphing the foundation of this mission. Most important of all, we are indebted to His Grace Albert D’souza, Bishop Emeritus of Archdiocese of Agra, the person behind this dream.

Geograhical Status of the Mission

St. Mary’s Church is in sector 34, Archdiocese of Agra Noida, Uttar Pradesh.  This parish has got 39 villages from which we are given two villages to fulfil the sacramental needs of the people.

We stay in the ground floor of the huge apartment at Mayur vihar phase III, Diocese of Delhi, in Delhi. The property actually belongs to the Archdiocese of Agra. So, the mission is in Agra-Diocese, UP. But our residence is in Delhi-Diocese, Delhi. The travel distance to the parish is nearly an hour to and fro, and an hour to the mission centres to and fro. We travel by Scoter to the missions. 

Our mission center known as  Sadarpur is a densely populated area, so to call it’s a slum area. There are multiple narrow roads to reach our mission.

In the late 1950s the Archbishop of Liverpool, Most Reverend John Carmel Heenan, invited the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament into his Diocese. Fr. Emile Berthiaume, S.S.S., local Superior of the Leicester Foundation went to meet His Grace at St. Augustine’s Oratory, Great Howard Street, in Liverpool’s dockland, the church the Archbishop had offered. It was always envisioned that this church would be a stepping stone to having a city centre church.

The parish of St. Alban and St. Joseph, in the diocese of Shrewsbury, was formed in 2010 through the linking of the two historical parishes of Our Lady of the Sea and St. Joseph, Seacombe and St. Alban’s, Liscard. Cutting across the differences, the parish community, from the very beginning, has been a place of compassion where the meaning of the charity of Christ is made plain. It is a popular, cheerful parish, but the sick and the needy are not forgotten. The community makes every effort possible to spread joy and hope to the people. Especially the programs devised in the parish are steered towards including everybody regardless of their background and catering to the spiritual and material needs of the sick, poor, needy and the children through the organisations such as: Messy church, SVP, School and Men and Ladies group. The parishioners have a very deep and fond love for Mary. They volunteer to serve the sick in Lourdes and are organised in an association which sponsors sick people to go to Lourdes every year. In the present, the Blessed Sacrament Fathers are running the parish with a special dedication to the spirituality of Eucharist. The parish has got everything needed to make you happy in this life and also in the next.
