About Us

Over View

The long perseverance of the dedicated catholic faithful, committed missionaries and spiritual leaders paved the way for this fruitful diocese in the year 1984 by His Holiness Pope John Paul II. The diocese works for the social, economic and cultural developments of the people in this region.

People were at risk of vector and water borne diseases in this area and also they were at risk of infection from communicable diseases, such as malaria, Japanese Encephalitis, pneumonia, dengue and leprosy. The diocese and its social department ventured into by establishing Fatima referral hospital in the year1995 in order to make health care available, affordable and accessible to the rural people with 20 beds and other ancillary services. The community primary care centres started in 1980's were transformed into satellite clinics under the patronage of Fatima hospital. Presently Fatima has a net work of 10 satellite clinics in the rural areas. All the primary care clinics are managed by religious sisters and committed staff. The beneficiaries of the community health programmes in far flung villages are referred to Fatima Hospital for further investigation and medical treatment. As a response to the requirements of the region, we constituted a cadre of health professionals by recruiting well experienced and dedicated doctors, nurses, caring team of missionary sisters who work tirelessly round the clock to save the life of the people. We deliver timely services to the rural people within the remit of 14 medical disciplines that are managed by qualified and well trained team of medical professionals.

History of our healing mission

The Catholic Diocese of Gorakhpur was erected on 19th June 1984 by His Holiness Pope John Paul II through the Bull "Exquo Divinum Concilium". It comprises of seven civil districts Gorakhpur, Maharajganj, Deoria, Basti, Sidharthanagar, Kushinagar and Sant Kabirnagar of eastern Uttar Pradesh, it was carved out of the diocese of Varanasi. Rev. Dominic Kokkat CST was appointed first Bishop of the diocese. Presently Most Rev. Bp Thomas Thuruthimattam CST is the bishop of Gorakhpur. The diocese covers 19,070 Sq. Kms. geographical area and 18 million of population.

Social service mission over the years

The diocese works for the social, economic and cultural developments of the people in this region. The long perseverance of the dedicated catholic faithful, committed Italian and Canadian missionaries and spiritual leaders paved the way for this fruitful diocese. The Catholic origin in Gorakhpur could be traced back to the primitives of Catholics in Bethiaraj who migrated to this city as agricultural labourers in the beginning of 1800th during the British colonialism. Further it is evident from the hand book of Bengal Mission, about the catholic mission work and pastoral care done by Fr Joseph Maria along with Italian fathers under the guidance of the Vicar Apostolic of Patna around 1740th in this region. They laid the foundation stone for the pastoral and social services in this region. 1892 to 1906 brought out remarkable developments with the constant perseverance of Fr Joseph Hiki and Fr T. Considine.

In the beginning Gorakhpur was in the Banaras Prefecture. Later it changed into Gorakhpur-Banaras Prefecture in the year 1947 under the able leadership of late Msgr. Jerome Malenfant, ofm cap. Under his auspicious guidance, the social and mission works started to flourish in all walks of social and religious spheres. The socio-economic nature of the region was so vulnerable and deteriorating.

The missionaries faced many challenges in providing better health to the people in the rural communities. There were no apt measures to meet the social and medical needs of the people. High population coupled with poverty created social vulnerability in the community. The vulnerability and deteriorating condition of the region brought rise in childhood illness, maternal morbidity and mortality. The geographical features further created vector and water borne diseases in this area. People were at risk of infection from communicable disease, such as malaria, pneumonia, dengue and leprosy. The social health problems took a high toll on individuals in the rural communities. Msgr. Jerome Malenfant, ofm cap felt the real pulse of the poor who needed basic facilities to survive. He visualized the immediate need of having dedicated and committed missionaries to provide human touch to the poor. So he invited CST fathers to extend their holistic services in this region.

Very Rev. Fr Basilius Panat CST, the founder of the Little Flower Congregation visited this backward region and worked out modalities took up the challenges bravely and assigned his priests to render indispensable pastoral care in Gorakhpur in 1969-70. CST fathers were actively involved in the evangelical work and their integrated social service mission led to the emergence of Gorakhpur diocese in the year 1984. Today under the diocese we have 42 religious priests, 44 diocesan priests, 12 religious brothers and 180 sisters to carry out the pastoral and community development works.

The deteriorating health status and the deplorable social condition that further boosted by poverty and rapid growth in population fetched many social and economic draw backs in the region. The diocese and its health department ventured into the problem by establishing dispensaries in the rural areas during 1975- 1990, thus making primary health care available to the people. To defend the social status and rights of the people, a social service wing consisting of various registered NGO’s and societies were formed. Purvanchal Gramin Seva Samiti (PGSS) the social service department operates community development actions in seven districts. Further diocese constituted different service departments such as Catholic education society under which we have schools and colleges to provide better educational services to eradicate illiteracy of the region and Diocesan society to look after the pastoral needs of the region. Little flower society was established to provide vocational training to the rural poor and a society for development initiatives for social action was formed for integral development interventions in the rural areas.

Geographical structure of the region and its hydrological feature further created ill-fate circumstances for the spread of vector and water borne diseases in this area. Japanese Encephalitis, dengue fever and Hep B&C were very common. Diocese implemented many strong community based health programmes but were deprived of an apt clinical intervention. Many people in this region miserably died due to unavailability of medical facilities and the community health centers failed to attend to the higher medical needs of the people. Even we lost two priests, working towards a better tomorrow for the region, due to the lack of timely medical intervention. So the health and the social service departments of the diocese felt the need of a hospital that could meet the urgent medical requirements and alter the vulnerability of the region. It paved the way for the birth of Fatima hospital.

Fatima community hospital is the realization of the dream cherished by the Catholic Diocese of Gorakhpur and it is established in the year1995 considering the genuine needs of the community. The community primary care centers started in 1980’s were transformed into satellite clinics under Fatima hospital. Presently Fatima has a net work of 10 satellite clinics in the rural areas. All these referral and primary care clinics are managed by religious nuns and committed staff. The beneficiaries of the community health programmes in far flung villages are referred to Fatima Hospital for further investigation and medical interventions. As a response to the requirements of the region, we constituted a cadre of health professionals by recruiting well experienced and dedicated doctors, nurses, caring team of missionary sisters and other health care professionals who work tirelessly round the clock to save the life of the people. We deliver timely services to the rural people within the remit of 15 medical disciplines that are managed by qualified and well trained team of medical professionals.

Fatima is a non profitable / charitable hospital. We stand as a community referral hospital for all the ten satellite clinics within the diocese. We ensure quality health services at minimum charges that any class of the society can afford. We provide affordable general outpatient and inpatient medical and surgical care to the deprived people in this region. Diocese of Gorakhpur has only one charitable hospital which undertakes timely clinical and social interventions to assure better health and economic status to its poor people.
