Education & Teaching Ministry

by OMI Bangladesh on November 9, 2012

Besides attending to the spiritual needs of the people the Oblate Fathers, with the help of other women Religious communities paid a very special attention to the Education of the children of the indigenous people. In every village a primary school was set up. Children qualifying were brought to the Junior High School in Lokhipur Parish and then to the High School in Mugaipar parish. In both parishes the children are provide with accommodation in the hostels for both boys and girls. We are ever grateful to our Japanese benefactors from ESNAC and ESA who regularly supported the education of these children.

Besides the school ministry the Oblates are involved from the very beginning in teaching philosophy and theology in the Major Seminary thus contributing a lot towards the formation of the local clergy and Religious. At present four Oblates are engaged full time and part time in this ministry. Fr. Ajit Costa teaches Missiology, Fr. Bejoy theology and Frs. Rex and Emil English.
