West Indies Missions

Since the Archdiocese is experiencing shortage of priests and at the request of the local bishop, four confreres of the Province took up pastoral work in Trinidad since June 1998. The scope for pastoral activities are very high as there is a great shortage of priests to attend to the pastoral needs of the people.

Papua New Guinea Missions

We started our ministry in Papua New Guinea in 2005 and four of our priests are working there. It is a fertile land for evangelization. However it is very challenging and demanding as the culture and situation are different from many other countries and underdeveloped in many aspects. The diocese greatly depends on priests from outside the country. We assist the diocese through formation and pastoral apostolate.

Canada Missions

We also have started a mission in Canada in the diocese of Keewatin-The Pas. The Parish of St. Lawrence in Thompson, Manitoba, which is around four hundred Kilometers away from The Pas is the one which is entrusted to us. Thompson is a developing city with welcoming mine-workers and First Nation people. Our confreres were introduced into the Parish on 6th July 2012, during the Holy Mass, the Vicar General and Chancellor entrusted the Parish and a few substations to the MSFS. Thus the longawaited dream of taking-up pastoral ministry in Canada by the MSFS has been actualized by God’s grace through Visakhapatnam Province.

Learning the dialects of the Fist Nation people, introducing ourselves into the culture and traditions of the people, building up of the faith formation and vibrancy of Christian living and getting acclimatized to the temperatures that would run down to minus 45o C in winter are the challenges ahead of us. Trusting in God, we go forward.
