In 2005, The Diocese of Western North Carolina embarked on a twelve year companion relationship with the Diocese of Durgapur in India. Through this partnership, we helped establish 7 schools, two hostels where the children live, one school for primarily Muslim children, three sewing centers, three chapters of the Order of St Luke's, two chapters of the Daughters of the King, and even one junior DOK chapter.
In 2016, the diocese decided to officially conclude the companion relationship with the Diocese of Durgapur and initiated the “Friends of Durgapur”, a method to support ongoing sponsorships of children in need. If you would like to learn more about “Friends of Durgapur” and sponsorships, please contact Ms. Judi Gustafson.
