The longboat was driven on to a gravel bank at the side of the river and before we had tied it up safely, more boats appeared till the bank was covered with a few dozen people. We then set off, up a steep muddy bank then along a jungle path through bamboo groves and underbrush, till we gathered again in a small clearing in the forest. The leader apologised because there were not so many people but that really was our fault.

The establishment of this shrine on the top of a hill traces its origin back to 2009, when the people of Gattupalli, a sub-station of Pargi mission in India, begged for God’s mercy as they struggled with severe famine. Scanty rains due to a seasonal quirk not only caused damage to the crops and dryness in the land, but also left people in dismay, fear and sadness.

    Jimmy Lindero mhm

    St. John the Baptist Parish is situated in Tando Allahyar city, 30 kilometers east of Hyderabad, Sindh Province, Pakistan. It was established by the Mill Hill Missionaries in the late seventies to be the focal point of their missionary apostolate among the Kutchi Kohli people, who belong to one of the indigenous ethnic minorities of Hindu background, in Sindh.
