BAGBASA (Quasi Parish)


Brief History: The process of forming the Parish at Bagbasa which in some way had begun with the discussion in the Provincial Chapter of the Holy Cross Fathers six years before the day of establishment, was initiated by late Fr. Mathew Ullatill, C.S.C. Fr. CR Paul, C.S.C. supervised the School and the construction from Panisagar while ministering pastorally in the area. On 25th March 2012, Holy Cross Quasi Parish was established and inaugurated by Bishop Lumen Monteiro, C.S.C. 10 mondolis along with Bagbasa mondoli were bifurcated from Kumarghat Parish to form the new Quasi Parish. Fr. CR Paul, C.S.C., was installed as the first Parochial Administrator. Today, the Parish covers the entire Civil Sub-Divisions of Panisagar and Dharmanagar.
