PHOTOS: Bishop McKnight's pilgrimage to India


Bishop W. Shawn McKnight City and Father Alex Ekka lead a pilgrimage to the Diocese of Jashpur, India, which has been a partner in mission with the Jefferson City diocese since 2012. With Bishop Emmanuel Kerketta of Jashpur, Bishop McKnight concelebrated a Mass marking the 50th anniversary of the diocese’s Cathedral of the Holy Rosary in Kunkuri; confirmed 67 people at St. Joseph Church in Tapkara; and presided at the Ordination Mass for five priests. He also visited several points of interest in the diocese before traveling with Bishop Kerketta to Kolkata to offer Mass at the tomb of St. Teresa of Kolkata, and to New Dehli to visit Archbishop Giambattista Diquattro, papal ambassador for India and Nepal.
