BISHRAMPUR:

     1981: Bishrampur Parish was entrusted to the Pallottine and Fr. William Bara, became the first Parish Priest.

Bishrampur parish was established in the year 1971. It is a small town in the diocese of Ambikapur, in the civil district of Surajpur. It is 30 kilometers away from the Bishop’s House and 11 kilometers away from the district headquarters Surajpur. Surajpur district came to exist as a district from 15 August 2011; however, earlier it was part of Surguja district.

The area has many coal mines which attract numerous migrant workers, among them also Catholics. But the major portion of the parish is forest, dotted with tribal settlements belonging to various tribal groups like Oraons, Rajwars, Gonds, Pandoes, Karwas etc. The Pallottines took charge of the Parish in 1981. The tribals are petty farmers and victims of exploitation by the landlords. The Pallottines gave priority to improve the literacy of these people and soon opened a boarding for the students from the remote villages who wished to attend school at Bishrampur.
