4 December 2017. After an intensive October the NSCTC is undergoing a bit of cleaning up. The main building is being redone, taking occasion of the break occurred after the last course on liturgy concluded on November the 10. In October worthy of mention is the retreat of the Khulna catechists (from the 16 to the 20) and the course on the gospels at the end of the month. The former saw the participation of around 40 catechists led by Fr. Babul Boiragi, parish-priest of Chalna Catholic Church; while the latter was led by Sr. Rosemary Shaha. This latter event was participated by 34 youngsters from several parishes of the Khulna diocese. Similarly, the course on liturgy saw the participation of 30 people, mostly youth. The liturgy course was led by Sr. Sumona Costa of hte NSCTC staff.
5 September 2017. Father Marcello Storgato after an absence of about 24 years is back in Bangladesh. It is too early to say what he will be doing, yet we are happy to have him around. Father Marcello is actually the modern founder of the NSCTC as we know it today and we would be very happy to have him back at the Training Centre. In one way or the other we are sure he will be more than willing to lend a hand to this creation of his whenever he will be needed. Welcome back!
Jessore 31-7-2017. It is nearly a month since the 3 Month Course has started at the National Social Catechetical Training Centre. A total of 37 students from all over Bangladesh are participating into the programme. The group is well knit and eager to learn and experience. The average age of the students is around 22: a wonderful age which enliven also those of the staff who are no longer as young! The group is infusing new life into the no longer young walls of our Centre.
It is with immense sorrow that the NSCTC got the news of the sudden demise of Fr. Garello Silvano sx, writer and missionary. He fell sick at 1.30 am last night and died soon after at around two o’clock.The NSCTC loses an untiring collaborator and a lover of Christ. He spent all his life till the last minute in discerning how to bring the Good News to the people, particularly through books and writing. The Xaverians lose a confrere, the Bangladesh Church one of his true servants and apostles. May the good Lord grant him eternal peace. Fr. Sivano pray for us!
The Training Centre is getting ready to house more than 120 people who, from the 17 to the 20 of January, will flock the Centre from different corners of the diocese of Khulna to attend the Annual Pastoral Council. To all of them a very safe journey to Jessore! ... Read More | Share it now!
