Catholic Church

Catholic Church, Visit Catholic Church of Mizoram, Temple tour of Catholic Church, Religious place of MizoramThe Catholic Church in Mizoram has grown from a single Parish to fifteen Parishes during a span of fifty years.The Catholic members increased rapidly. There were more than 200 members In 1926. They built a church with thatched roof in 1927 at Kulikawn, Aizawl, where Christ the King Cathedral is now located.

History of the Church
Beginnings of the Catholic Church in Mizoram are traced back to the initiatives of some lay people. Pu Lianchheuva and his friends began to favour the Catholic faith after reading some booklets on the Catholic faith and decided to take some steps for the spreading of the faith among the Mizo.

The spread of the Catholic faith soon became a matter of bad taste to other denominations. Their leaders even succeeded to convince the Governor of Assam with the help of the Superintendent of Lushai Hills to refuse any entry of Catholic Missionaries into Mizoram. This ban continued to be enforced till the end of 1946.

Social contributions of Catholic Church towards Society
The Catholic Church in Mizoram is not only catering to the spiritual needs but also for the temporal needs of the people of Mizoram. The Church works to promote education, peace, social justice, social health etc. The Church makes a very significant contribution in the field of education. It runs more than thirty educational institutions in the state, three Higher Secondary, five Secondary and more than twenty Elementary schools. Besides these the Church runs dispensaries, technical schools, charity homes, social work centers, printing presses, hostels etc.

In the past decade the Catholic Church in Mizoram had made significant strides towards adulthood by contributing many of her sons and daughters as Missionaries to carry on the various apostolic activities of the Church. There are, as of now, six priests, more than fifty Religious Sisters and half a dozen Religious Brothers among the Mizo, serving in the vineyard of the Lord in different parts of India and abroad.
