WELLCOME TO DIOCESE OF DURGAPUR
The history of the Diocese of Durgapur has a rich and dynamic heritage along with magnanimous memories. Three protestant denominations were involved in this area, namely Church Missionary Society (CMS), Methodist Missionary Society (MMS), and the American Baptist Mission. Thus, the missionary work in this area began about one hundred and seventy-two years ago. It is equally important to introduce the geographical territory of the Diocese of Durgapur. The total area of the Diocese is about 43,340 Sq.km. The Diocese covers the districts of Burdwan, Bankura, Purulia, Midnapore, Malda, Uttar Dinajpur and Dakshin Dinajpur. At present it consists of 31 pastorates; 209 churches and the total membership is about 29,948. This is basically the composition of the Diocese. West Bengal also comprises of a rich history of the Santal people who have been perennially on the move in search of food, shelter and above all dignity and respect. Jal, Jungle, Jamin and Janwar, were their fundamental assets. It was discovered that the Santals have their own language and literature, art culture and festivals. Several missionaries have contributed a lot towards the foundation of the Diocese of Durgapur. The tremendous work by the missionaries within the community people expounds the impression of their marvelous contribution that they have carried in West Bengal. Such a story has to be told and re-told time and again with great joy and honor.
