Nepal is a Hindu dominated country in the Himalayas. The Christian population is less than 2%. The Vicariate of Kathmandu has 8 parishes,10 mission stations and 24 submission stations.
The SSVP has its presence in all the parishes and in some mission stations. These conferences were in distant locations and difficult to access and most of them were not at all lively or active. So an Orientation programme was arranged in Central Nepal on 18th May 2019. ( similar programme was arranged in East Nepal in Feb.2018) which was found to be very useful as this was the first of its kind in Nepal .
The Programme was inaugurated by the Rev. Fr. Silas Baugati ,Vicar general of Kathmandu Vicariate and attended by more than 40 Vincentians. Some Catholics who wished to join the Society also participated.
