 DONGARGARH:

January 17, 1952: Dongargarh Mission started with the purchase of Land. But the Parish had a formal Beginning in 1964. And in 1964, Dongargarh farm started.

Dongargarh was a parish mainly for the employees of the Indian Railways. Priests travelling from Nagpur to Raipur often spent time there to minister to the Catholics. Dongargarh was an important station during the early days of the Pallottines in India. On January 17, 1952, the Society had purchased land form the locals. A novitiate house was opened here in a rented house. Thus Dongargarh has also the distinction of housing the first ever formation house of the Pallottines in India, though the novitiate did not continue there for long. The parish was formally entrusted to the Pallottines in 1964 and the Society assumed the task of evangelizing the area around Dongargarh.
